Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $109,876)

The Adam Walsh Act is designed to protect children and adults from sexual exploitation and violent crime, prevent child abuse and child pornography, promote Internet safety, and honor the memory of Adam Walsh and other crime victims. The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), part of the Adam Walsh Act, was enacted to protect the public from convicted sex offenders by establishing a comprehensive national system for the registration and notification of those offenders. The state of Iowa will utilize funds for the development and/or enhancement of programs designed to implement the SORNA portion of the Adam Walsh Act (42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq.). This project will provide necessary technical equipment to Iowa SORN agencies, increase the number of participants trained, reduce the number of absconder offenders, and reduce the number of paper mailings to the central registry.
