Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $19,826)

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.

PREA funding will be used to offset travel expenses for the PREA juvenile coordinator and the PREA compliance analyst incurred to achieve and maintain full compliance in Michigan’s public and private juvenile facilities, and expenses incurred participating in PREA audits.
