Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $6,843)

Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties. Congress intended that PREA would provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State, and local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations, and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.

The grantee plans to support PREA programming in youth facilities and will continue a training and technical assistance program initiated in 2014 designed to move Mississippi towards PREA compliance. NCA/NCF
