Apply for the FY 2020 Upholding the Rule of Law and Preventing Wrongful Convictions Program
The Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking applications for its Fiscal Year 2020 Upholding the Rule of Law and Preventing Wrongful Convictions (ROL/WCR) Program. To prioritize the integrity of the criminal justice system, the ROL/WCR program will support entities in reviewing wrongful conviction cases for individuals they represent who claim their innocence. To ensure this integrity is maintained, individuals working under the ROL/WCR program will strategically review each post-conviction and appeals claim, identify and capture the actual criminal if possible, assess any systemic issues that jeopardize the rule of law, and propose solutions.
Applications for the ROL/WCR Program must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 13, 2020.
