Grants to USA and territories government agencies, tribal governments, prosecutor's offices, and law enforcement agencies to improve judicial outcomes for victims of gender-based assault. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to improve the capacity of state and local jurisdictions to respond to violent crime. The purpose of funding is to enhance the functioning of the criminal justice system through the investigation and prosecution of cases resulting from sexual assault kits (SAK) evidence and the collection of lawfully owed DNA.
SAKI provides funding to support multidisciplinary community response teams to inventory, track, and expeditiously test previously unsubmitted SAKs; collect and test lawfully owed DNA from offenders/arrestees; produce necessary protocols and policies to improve collaboration among laboratories, police, prosecutors, and victim service providers; provide resources to address the sexual assault investigations and prosecutions that result from evidence and CODIS hits produced by tested SAKs; and optimize victim notification protocols and services.
