Bloodsworth Postconviction Grant

The Justice for All Act of 2004 authorized the establishment of the Kirk Bloodsworth Postconviction DNA Testing Grant Program. The program provides funding to states to help defray the costs associated with postconviction DNA testing. Though not the sole measure of program success, as a result of NIJ's funding and the hard work of the grantees, to date, 10 exonerations have been achieved through DNA testing. Read all about them on the updated Postconviction page.
