Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $2,200,000)

Authorized under the Prison Rape Elimination Act, Site-Based PREA Implementation supports jurisdictions nationwide to effectively implement the National PREA Standards. The national training and technical assistance provider will deliver strategic support and targeted assistance to BJA’s FY2019 PREA grantees, and to jurisdictions that have submitted PREA assurances to DOJ and reallocated not less than five percent of BJA’s Byrne JAG funds to implement the National PREA standards. Program funds will be used to identify and mobilize a team of expert practitioners to provide tailored and individualized support to grantees on an as-needed basis to deliver effective technical assistance to implement the National PREA Standards, and zero tolerance cultures related to sexual abuse and sexual harassment in confinement facilities.

Impact Justice will partner with The Moss Group, Just Detention International, and the Vera Institute to develop resources and provide site-based technical assistance to assist state, local, and tribal jurisdictions who oversee prisons, jails, juvenile facilities, community confinement facilities, and lockups, implement the National PREA Standards, to prevent sexual abuse and sexual harassment in confinement facilities.
