Funding Available through the DNA Capacity Enhancement for Backlog Reduction (CEBR) Program

BJA is seeking applications for funding through the FY 2020 DNA Capacity Enhancement for Backlog Reduction (CEBR) Program (Formula) opportunity.

This program funds 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.

Learn more about this opportunity and apply by 11:59 p.m. ET on August 7, 2020.

Date Created: June 19, 2020
