FY24 Postconviction Testing of DNA Evidence Solicitation Released

The FY24 Postconviction Testing of DNA Evidence funding opportunity is now available.

With this solicitation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks to assist in defraying the costs associated with postconviction case review, evidence location, and DNA testing in violent felony cases (as defined by state law) where the results of such testing might show actual innocence. The program ensures the availability of fair and impartial administration of justice to individuals who may have been unjustly convicted.

On April 3, 2024, at 3 p.m. ET, BJA will be hosting a webinar to provide details about this opportunity and offer a chance for participants to ask questions. Register to participate.

Learn more about this opportunity and apply by the posted deadlines.
