The Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Program awards grants to states and units of local government to improve the quality and timeliness of forensic science and medical examiner services and/or to eliminate backlogs in the analysis of forensic science, including controlled substances, firearms examination, forensic pathology, latent prints, questioned documents, toxicology and trace evidence. OCJS holds a planning meeting each year with past applicants to determine the amount of funding each agency will receive. The amount each agency receives is based on a formula of the number of forensic scientists and medical examiners in each laboratory.
