Forensic Examiner programs; developing Sexual Assault Response Teams or

violence and dating violence homicides.

of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is 
estimated that it will take the approximately 200 respondents (ICJR 
Program grantees) approximately one hour to complete a semi-annual 
progress report. The semi-annual progress report is divided into 
sections that pertain to the different types of activities in which 
grantees may engage. An ICJR Program grantee will only be required to

activities (victim services, law enforcement, training, etc.).

with the collection: The total annual hour burden to complete the data
