Description: DOJ seeks applications from eligible States and units of local government that will inventory, track, and report the status of SAKs. As an integral part of these activities, applicants also 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, including the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and NIJ, funding from this program will not be made available for testing evidence. Nonetheless, in order to facilitate the prioritization of cases (for testing) in which an applicable statute(s) of limitations is soon to expire, applicants are to include in the application 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.
