Sexual Assault Services Program

The Sexual Assault Services Formula Grant Program (SASP) is the first federal funding stream solely dedicated to the provision of direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault. The SASP Formula Grant Program directs grant dollars to states and territories to assist in supporting rape crisis centers and other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations or tribal programs that provide services, direct intervention and related assistance to victims of sexual assault.  Funds provided through SASP are designed to supplement other funding sources directed at addressing sexual assault on the state and territorial level. The Nebraska Crime Commission is the State Administrating Agency (SAA) of these funds; however, the Nebraska Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence is the pass through entity for distribution of this funding stream to sexual assault programs across the state. The SASP grant funds are earmarked to provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment and other support services to adult, youth and child victims of sexual assault, family/household members and others that are collaterally affected by the victimization.
