NIJ FY17 Postconviction Testing of DNA Evidence

NIJ seeks proposals for funding to assist in defraying the costs associated with postconviction DNA testing in cases of violent felony offenses (as defined by State law) in which actual innocence might be demonstrated.

Funds may be used to identify and review such postconviction cases and to locate


and analyze associated biological evidence.

This supports the DOJ mission to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

While successful exonerations to correct injustice are notable program outcomes, the careful review, consideration and closing of cases subjected to postconviction DNA testing that do not ultimately demonstrate innocence also work to advance the public's interest that justice has been fairly applied.
