The goal of NIJ’s FY 2017 DNA Capacity Enhancement and Backlog Reduction (CEBR) program is to assist eligible states and units of local government to process, record, screen, and analyze forensic DNA and/or DNA database samples and to increase the capacity of public forensic DNA and DNA database laboratories to process more DNA samples — thereby helping to reduce the number of forensic DNA and DNA database samples awaiting analysis.
Under this program, in general, eligible applicants are given the opportunity, based on their individual needs, to determine what portion of their anticipated funding should be used for capacity building purposes and what portion should be used for analysis of forensic DNA and/or DNA database samples.
The deadline for applications under this funding opportunity is March 13.
Special notice: On January 12, 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. eastern time, NIJ will be holding a webinar regarding funding opportunities available for publicly funded crime labs. During this webinar, presenters will discuss the background, goals, application expectations, and recommendations for successful applications surrounding four NIJ programs, one of which is a new program being offered this fiscal year:
           Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Grants Program
           Research and Evaluation for the Testing and Interpretation of Physical Evidence in Publicly 
Funded Forensic Laboratories
           The DNA Capacity and Backlog Reduction (DNA CEBR) program
           The Forensic DNA Laboratory Efficiency Improvement and Capacity Enhancement (DNA
