Learn About the National Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Resource Center

Impact Justice, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, manages The National Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Resource Center (PRC). The PRC helps state, local, and tribal agencies to implement PREA standards. The PRC also supports the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) audit function.

The PRC offers support via training and technical assistance as well as online resources. For direct training and technical assistance, they provide a PREA Targeted Implementation Planning and Support Program, a federally funded opportunity to help locally operated small-to-medium-sized jails, juvenile facilities, community confinement facilities, lockups, and tribal facilities properly implement PREA Standards.

The website includes resources for PREA implementation, information about the PREA audit process, a resource library, and interpretive guidance published by the DOJ PREA Working Group in the form of Frequently Asked Questions.
