The National Tribal Clearinghouse on Sexual Assault funding may be used to establish, sustain, and/or expand training, educational programs, and technical assistance on issues relating to sexual assault of AI/AN women.
Beginning in 2012, Congress appropriated funds for a national clearinghouse to provide training and technical assistance on sexual assault against American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women. The purpose of the clearinghouse is to provide training and technical assistance designed to improve victim services for and criminal and civil justice response to AI/AN sexual assault victims as well as increase offender accountability for such crimes. This program has previously been awarded with the title National Indian Country Clearinghouse on Sexual Assault (NICCSA). Funding priority will be given to applicants proposing innovative ways of reaching a national audience of entities addressing the sexual assault of AI/AN women, including tribal and non-tribal organizations within urban areas.
