With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks proposals to strengthen the medical examiner/coroner (ME/C) system in the United States. Through this program, BJA will support grants in two focus areas by:

  1. Supporting forensic pathology fellowships.
  2. Providing resources necessary for ME/C offices to achieve accreditation.

Proposals are expected to clearly identify the purpose area to which they are applying. If applicants are requesting funds from both purpose areas, separate applications must be submitted for each purpose area.
