Review of Best Practices for ICJI Program Areas: Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP) and Sexual Offense Services (SOS)

Services: Policy analysis, Program evaluation, Benchmarking/indicators

Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

This report describes best practices for subgrants awarded under the Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP) and Sexual Offense Services (SOS) funding streams administered by ICJI. For this assessment, CCJR researchers consulted relevant materials from ICJI, including subgrantee information for the previous two funding cycles under each program, SASP and SOS subgrantee solicitation documents, and 2011 funded SASP and SOS subgrantee applications. 

The SASP was created by the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005. SASP is the first federal funding stream dedicated to the provision of direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault. The overall purpose of the SASP is to “provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment, support services, and related assistance for adult, youth, and child victims of sexual assault, family and household members of victims, and those collaterally affected by the sexual assault (Office of Violence Against Women, 2011, p. 1).
