Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $7,231)
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.
Wisconsin will use funding to install and implement a cross-gender notification system. This combination system will allow hearing and visually impaired youth to benefit from such announcement.
