Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $16,162)
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 North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS) will continue to increase its efforts to eliminate sexual abuse. NCDPS requires reallocation funding to support PREA audit activities to comply with national standards.
