Describes the procedures for applying for continuation funding under the Bureau of
Justice Statistics' National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP). The NCHIP
program assists States in to improve the accuracy, completeness, and interstate
availability of criminal history records, to identify and flag records of persons
convicted of domestic violence offenses, including stalking, and related protective
orders, and, to develop interfaces between State record systems and the interstate
systems operated by the FBI, including the National Instant Criminal Background Check
system (NICS), the Interstate Identification System (III), the Integrated Automated
Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), and the FBI's Sex Offender Registry and
National Protection Order file.
Starting in FY 1999, activities formerly funded under the BJS National Sex Offender
Registry Assistance Program (NSOR-AP) will also be funded from the NCHIP
The goal of the NSOR-AP program is to assist States to establish and upgrade the
operation of State sex offender registries and to interface these registries with the
FBI's National Sex Offender Registry. This will ensure that accurate and complete
information about released sex offenders is appropriately made available to protect
public and prevent further victimization. The FY 1999 appropriation for the overall
NCHIP program is $45 million.
Deadline: Applications must be received by March 15, 1999, to be eligible for funding from the FY 1999 appropriation.
Eligibility: Applications may only be submitted by the agency designated by the Governor to
administer the project(s).
