Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $6,614)

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 Mississippi Department of Public Safety will allocate funds to assist in providing training and technical assistance for monitoring purposes in order to prevent sexual misconduct from occurring in the juvenile correctional confinement setting.
