Use up to 10 options to narrow or broaden your search

A database that contains thousands of grants has to be easily searchable. Searching isn’t always as easy as tapping a button, though. Sometimes you need to really refine and target what you’re looking for, so you have a better chance at finding a good fit.

That’s why GrantFinder provides powerful yet simple tools to help you focus your search, including:

  • Keyword
  • Grant Category
  • Funder Type
  • Funder Name

Instead of page after page of possibilities, you can search based solely on what you need and what’s relevant to your department.

Of course, you have other duties to attend to and can’t be expected to be searching in GrantFinder all the time. That’s why GrantFinder can be working for you even when you aren’t using it.

BJA FY2017 National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI)

BJAGrants up to $3,000,000

Grant Website

Grant Guidelines

Grant Deadline: Mar. 2, 2017

Test Untested Sexual Assault Kits & Prevent Sexual Assaults

The purpose of this grant program is to provide funding to test untested sexual assault kits, prevent sexual assaults, and improve the criminal justice system’s response to sexual assaults.

What this grant does for your agency

The National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI), administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), provides funding through a competitive grant program to support
multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions’ approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits (SAKs). The focus of this solicitation is on those “unsubmitted kits” which are defined as SAKs that have not been submitted to a forensic laboratory for testing with CODIS-eligible DNA methodologies. This includes partially tested SAKs as defined below. This program is not directed at untested kits that have been submitted to forensic labs for testing with CODIS-eligible DNA methodologies but are delayed for testing for longer than 30 days, e.g., as a result of a backlog of work in the laboratory. These are separate and distinct issues.

The goal of the SAKI is the creation of a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to these cases, whenever possible, through a victim-centered approach, as well as to build jurisdictions’ capacity to prevent the development of conditions that lead to high numbers of unsubmitted SAKs in the future. This holistic program provides jurisdictions with resources to address their unsubmitted SAK issue, including support to inventory, test, and track SAKs; create and report performance metrics; access necessary training to increase effectiveness in addressing the complex issues associated with these cases and engage in multidisciplinary policy development, implementation, and coordination; and improve practices related to investigation, prosecution, and victim engagement and support in connection with evidence and cases resulting from the testing process. In FY 2015, 20 SAKI-site based grants were awarded to jurisdictions across the country for a total of $30,196,409. In FY 2016, 19 SAKI site-based grants were awarded for a total of $24,744,114, along with 7 supplemental awards to FY 2015 sites totaling $6,649,617.

Agencies awarded the BJA FY2017 National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) receive a grant of up to $3,000,000.

Only a limited number of grants will be awarded. With estimated total program funding of $4,100,000, 57 awards are expected.

As an agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, OVC administers federal funds to support victim services, provides training for diverse professionals who work with victims, develops projects to enhance victims’ rights and services, and undertakes public education and advocacy activities on behalf of crime victims. OVC works with international, national, tribal, state, military, and local victim assistance and criminal justice agencies and other professional organizations to promote fundamental rights and comprehensive services for crime victims.

What this grant does for your agency

Help for the Aftermath of Crimes of Terrorism and Mass Violence

The threat of terrorism and criminal mass violence against Americans, both in the United States and abroad, has increased in recent years. Such acts leave victims with serious physical and emotional wounds and challenge government officials and communities to respond immediately with appropriate effort. Victim assistance and compensation providers face the daunting task of coordinating effective and timely responses, providing information and assistance to victims, and working closely with other agencies and victim service organizations. OVC can help. Through the Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program, we are committed to providing assistance to communities reeling from terrorist attacks and other cases of mass violence.

OVC offers 5 categories of assistance to respond to terrorism and mass violence: crisis response, consequence management, criminal justice support, crime victim compensation, and training and technical assistance. Assistance in each category targets a specific phase in the aftermath of a crisis and is designed to meet the immediate and extended needs of victims and the community.

  • Crisis response grants (available up to 9 months) provide funds to help victims build adaptive capacities, decrease stressors, and reduce symptoms of trauma immediately following the terrorism or mass violence event.
  • Consequence management grants (available up to 18 months) provide supplemental funds to help victims recover from the traumatic event and to restore their sense of equilibrium.
  • Criminal justice support grants (available up to 36 months) facilitate victim participation in an investigation or prosecution directly related to the terrorist or mass violence event.
  • Crime victim compensation grants (available any time during crisis aftermath) provide supplemental funds to state crime victim compensation programs to reimburse victims for out-of-pocket expenses related to their victimization.
  • Training and technical assistance (available any time during crisis aftermath) provide tools to help federal, state, and local authorities identify victim needs and needed resources, coordinate services to victims, develop strategies for responding, and address related issues.

Grant Eligibility

Eligible applicants for funds include state victim assistance and victim compensation programs; U.S. Attorneys; Offices; victim service and nongovernmental organizations; and federal, state, and local governments. (Note: Funding is not available to foreign governments.)

If multiple requests for funding are received from a single jurisdiction, applicants must describe plans for collaboration.

About The Office of Justice Programs (OJP)

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) provides innovative leadership to federal, state, local, and tribal justice systems, by disseminating state-of-the art knowledge and practices across America, and providing grants for the implementation of these crime fighting strategies. Because most of the responsibility for crime control and prevention falls to law enforcement officers in states, cities, and neighborhoods, the federal government can be effective in these areas only to the extent that it can enter into partnerships with these officers. Therefore, OJP does not directly carry out law enforcement and justice activities. Instead, OJP works in partnership with the justice community to identify the most pressing crime-related challenges confronting the justice system and to provide information, training, coordination, and innovative strategies and approaches for addressing these challenges.
