Program Budget Assignment

Imagine that you are seeking a $50,000 grant for the purpose of improving the processing and examination of DNA evidence collected pursuant to criminal investigations in your local police department. There are many DNA samples awaiting processing, and the funding is meant to help improve the process. The grant funding period is one year (12 months).

Create a budget for your program. Include a spreadsheet detailing your budget, as well as a 350- to 700-word explanation for how you decided to allocate the funds in your budget.
