Impact Justice, with funding from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, is seeking applications for the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Targeted Implementation Planning and Support (TIPS) program. PREA TIPS will assist small and medium locally operated jails, juvenile facilities, community confinement facilities, and tribal facilities with PREA implementation. Agencies and facilities will receive strategic guidance from subject matter experts at Impact Justice, the PREA Resource Center, the Vera Institute of Justice, and the Center for Children’s Law and Policy during a planning phase before entering into an up to 18-month phase to implement their plan. Applicants do not need a highly developed plan on how they will spend the money, they must just be able to describe where they are in the process of PREA implementation, create a simple budget, and have the support of facility or agency leadership. This funding also requires match funding, either cash or in-kind, from awardees as a sign of the institution’s commitment to change.
