​New Solicitation: Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence-Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting Program (SAFE-ITR)

NIJ seeks funding applications from eligible States and units of local government that will inventory, track, and report the status of Sexual Assault Kits (SAKs).

As an integral part of these activities, applicants are expected to identify and prioritize (for testing) SAKs for which prosecution of a perpetrator is soon to be barred by the expiration of an applicable statute(s) of limitations.

Since multiple grant programs for testing evidence related to sexual assault are offered through the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), funding from the SAFE-ITR program will not be made available for testing evidence.

Applicants are to include detailed plans to clearly identify such potentially time-limited cases in the applicant’s SAK inventory, implement methods and approaches to track such cases, and report on the disposition of any such cases during the period of performance under the award.

All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on May 21, 2018.

Applicants must register with prior to submitting an application.
