FAQ Detail
Where can a state get further information on the requirements of the relief from disabilities program required to be eligible for grant funding?

The Bureau of Alchol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is available to answer questions about whether existing state laws meet the standards for state relief from disability programs contemplated in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Act. ATF is also available to provide technical assistance to states seeking to establish such programs under the Act. State questions and requests for assistance can be directed to ATF at See also State Relief from Disabilities Program Criteria and Federal Relief From Disabilities Program Criteria.
