This program provides funding to states and units of local government with existing crime laboratories that conduct DNA analysis to increase the capacity of publicly funded forensic DNA and DNA database laboratories to process more DNA samples, thereby helping to reduce the number of forensic DNA and DNA database samples awaiting analysis and/or prevent a backlog of forensic and database DNA samples.

Funding under this program supports the following purposes:

  1. To carry out, for inclusion in the Combined DNA Index System, DNA analyses of database samples collected under applicable legal authority.
  2. To carry out, for inclusion in the Combined DNA Index System, DNA analyses of forensic case (e.g., “crime scene”) samples.
