The Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program (TSASP) supports efforts to create, maintain, and expand sustainable sexual assault services provided by Tribes, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations within Indian country and Alaska Native villages. TSASP supports projects that provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment (e.g., accompanying victims to court, medical facilities, or police departments), support services, and related assistance for adult, youth, and child victims of sexual assault, non-offending family and household members of victims, and those collaterally affected by the sexual assault.
Eligible applicants include federally recognized Native American tribal governments, tribal consortiums, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations.
New This Year
The Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Act of 2022 added “direct payments” to the list of items that may constitute “intervention and related assistance” for victims of sexual assault under the TSASP statute.
