The Season of Justice (SOJ) corporation supports victims of unsolved violent crimes by contributing to various types of testing (including advanced DNA) performed for law enforcement professionals by private entities to assist in resolving such cases.
Season of Justice does not fund adult Doe cases where the investigative goal is limited to identifying the victim. Adult Doe cases may be funded in cases with special circumstances. Funding emphasis will be placed on Baby Doe and Juvenile Doe cases where prosecution is still viable. If you need additional guidance please contact the Season of Justice staff.
Additional rounds of funding for investigations are rare. Please review all needed testing and processing required to give your agency the needed profile for follow-up and include those vendor costs in this application.
In 2022 Season of Justice invested $535,148 to support investigative agencies and families in 65 unsolved cases. Effective November 1, Season of Justice will not be accepting grant applications through the remainder of the 2022 calendar year.
The Season of Justice grant portal will reopen on January 1, 2023.
