The SAFE-ITR Program provides funding for agencies to gain insight into the scope of unanalyzed sexual assault kits (SAKs) and for managing the status of the workflow of the SAKs.
Through this program, BJA seeks applications from eligible states and units of local government that will inventory, track, and report the status of SAKs. As an integral part of these activities, applicants also are expected to identify and prioritize (for testing) SAKs for which prosecution of a perpetrator is soon to be barred by the expiration of an applicable statute(s) of limitations.
Since multiple grant programs for sexual assault evidence testing are offered through OJP, funding from the SAFE-ITR Program will not be made available for testing evidence.
