This program seeks to improve forensic science and medical examiner/coroner services, including services provided by laboratories operated by States and units of local government.
Among other things, funds may be used to eliminate a backlog in the analysis of forensic evidence and to train and
employ forensic laboratory personnel, as needed, to eliminate such a backlog.
The Coverdell Act requires that 15 percent of program funds be awarded competitively.
These competitive funds may be awarded to SAAs or dispersed directly to units of local government based on the merits of the respective applications.
This solicitation will fund competitive awards only.
