  Abstract: On March 20, 2012, NIJ released the solicitation seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Grants Program. NIJ received 196 applications; 23 States applied for base funding, while 31 States applied for a combination of base and competitive funding. The remaining 142 applications were received from units of local government for competitive funding. Thirty applications were denied due to various circumstances such as duplicate applications, failure to meet basic minimum requirements and non-responsive to solicitation criteria. NIJ made 75 awards totaling $10,586,098; 51 States received base awards, 3 States received combination base competitive awards, and 21 units of local government received competitive awards. Provided is a detailed list of the FY 2012 Coverdell awards. The table includes base and competitive funding amounts and a short description of the purpose of each award.
