Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $60,448)
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.
With these funds, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) will enhance the prevention portion of PREA training for CDCR Department of Juvenile Justice that includes continued refresher training, education material/information, and obtain funding for PREA audits.
