Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $19,046)

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 District of Columbia will utilize funding to conduct an evaluation of the victim assessment tool and protocol, and to train staff and administrators on how to administer the tool and collect data from the tool. Additionally, funding will support the revision of policies, procedures and protocols.
