With this solicitation, BJA seeks to fund the continuation of the PREA Resource Center (PRC) to ensure continued progress toward meaningful implementation of the PREA standards in the nation’s confinement facilities and to strengthen the commitment of staff members in these facilities and the agencies that oversee them to eliminate sexual abuse and sexual harassment of persons who are confined. This solicitation prioritizes efforts to create and enhance cultures in confinement facilities and agencies that do not tolerate sexual victimization.
Under this new cooperative agreement, the PRC will continue to deliver targeted training and technical assistance (TA) and make practical, relevant PREA implementation resources available to state, local, and tribal corrections and law enforcement professionals, those who advocate on behalf of victims of sexual abuse and persons who are confined, and other stakeholders across the country working to eliminate sexual abuse and sexual harassment in confinement facilities, and achieve and maintain compliance with the PREA standards.
