This webinar will provide details and guidance for potential applicants to the Bureau of Justice Assistance's (BJA's) FY24 Upholding the Rule of Law and Preventing Wrongful Convictions Program solicitation. The presenter will discuss the purpose and goals of this funding opportunity, review eligibility requirements, and address frequently asked questions. A Q&A session will conclude this webinar.

With this solicitation, BJA seeks to support efforts by both wrongful conviction review (WCR) entities, which represent individuals with post-conviction claims of innocence to review individual cases, and conviction integrity or review units (CIUs) to enhance criminal justice system integrity. This opportunity also includes a category to select a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider to ensure WCR and CIUs entities and the field obtain the skills, training, and information on the latest practices to safeguard the integrity of convictions and support post-conviction review of claims of wrongful convictions. The TTA provider will also build and maintain a database for the field on exonerations.
