The Missouri Office of the Attorney General (MOAG) was awarded a $2,871,423 SAKI grant in FY2018 to complete a statewide sexual assault kit (SAK) inventory and develop a comprehensive, statewide approach for addressing previously unsubmitted SAKs. In FY2020, MOAG was awarded an additional $2 million in SAKI funding to continue efforts from their FY2018 SAKI award and perform DNA testing on an additional 1,148 SAKs, upload Combined DNA Index System hits, and enter cases into the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program database. The funding also will be used to continue funding the site coordinator position.

As of September 2020, the Missouri SAKI site has completed their inventory of 7,020 previously unsubmitted SAKs. They also have established a multidisciplinary team with members representing all regions of the state; this team meets quarterly to discuss project progress and next steps. The MOAG is also in the process of developing a specialized evidence tracking system to meet the needs of the state's sexual assault survivors.
