BJA is seeking applications for funding through the FY 2020 National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) opportunity. 

This program provides funding to support multidisciplinary community response teams to inventory, track, and expeditiously test previously unsubmitted SAKs; collect and test lawfully owed DNA from offenders/arrestees; produce necessary protocols and policies to improve collaboration among laboratories, police, prosecutors, and victim service providers; provide resources to address the sexual assault investigations and prosecutions that result from evidence and CODIS hits produced by tested SAKs; and optimize victim notification protocols and services.

Learn more about this opportunity and apply by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 27, 2020.
