Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $10,416)
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 focus of this project will be to assist the Terrebonne Juvenile Detention Center located in Houma, Louisiana, to become compliant with the PREA requirements.
The Terrebonne Parish Juvenile Detention Center will be the sub-grantee.
