On July 20th, 2021, the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) partnered with the Bureau of Justice Assistance to host a pre-application webinar for the National Service Line for Incarcerated Victims of Sexual Abuse Initiative. The National Service Line for Incarcerated Victims of Sexual Abuse Initiative aims to identify if a National Sexual Abuse Service Line will effectively assist correctional facilities and agencies with complying with and achieving Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Standards. The solicitation aims to identify an eligible organization to develop a comprehensive plan for designing and implementing the service line.
During the webinar, OVW guided listeners through the application process for the FY2021 National Service Line for Incarcerated Survivors of Sexual Abuse Initiative, including eligible organizations and application materials. Additionally, OVW answered questions from program grant applicants.
Applications are due by Wednesday, August 25th, 2021.
