This fact sheet on the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA’s) Missing and Unidentified Human Remains (MUHR) Program provides a brief introduction to the program, which aims to help jurisdictions become more self-reliant and self-sufficient in reducing their backlog of missing persons and unidentified human remains cases. The MUHR Program was initiated in Fiscal year 2022 and provides funds to enable entities to improve the reporting, transportation, forensic testing, and identification of missing persons and unidentified human remains, including migrants, using various forensic disciplines such as anthropology, odontology, and DNA. The three purpose areas that are funded under the MUHR Program include: statewide agencies; counties and/or units of local government; and services to assist small, rural, and/or tribal entities.
