Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $11,761)

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.

WA State will utilize PREA reallocation funding to directly address the compliance issue of National Background screening. Funds will be utilized to help pay for National background checks to ensure WA State compliance with PREA regulations.
