Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $129,762)
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) provides that a state or territory whose governor does not certify full compliance with the standards is subject to the loss of five percent of any DOJ grant funds that it would otherwise receive for prison purposes, unless the governor submits an assurance that such five percent will be used only for the purpose of enabling the state to achieve and certify full compliance with the standards in future years. See 34 U.S.C. 30307(e). The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is one of the DOJ grant programs subject to this requirement in fiscal year (FY) 2018.
The goals of the FY 2018 PREA Reallocation JAG Program are to continue implementation of the national standards to prevent, detect, and respond to prison rape in order to protect individuals from sexual abuse and sexual harassment in confinement.
The recipient will continue to support activities in an effort to achieve compliance with the PREA Standards. Specifically, the funds will be used to establish and develop a treatment program and provide psychological care to the sexual victims. The program will be constituted by four clinicians, two clinical psychologists, and two clinical social workers. In addition to personnel costs, a portion of funds will be used towards necessary equipment and supplies. The goal of the program is to provide services to the victims and to their families.
