Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program

The Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program (TSASP) is one of five funding streams within the Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP). Overall, the purpose of SASP is to provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment (e.g., accompanying victims to court, medical facilities, 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. TSASP specifically supports projects 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.

Funds under TSASP may be used to support the establishment, maintenance, and expansion of programs and projects within Indian country and Alaska Native villages to assist those victimized by sexual assault.

Eligible applicants are limited to: Indian tribes, tribal consortiums, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations.

In 2022, TSASP gave out seven awards, totaling over $3.6 million.

Once posted, the solicitation to apply for this program can be found on OVW’s website. Members of the public can also sign up for notifications on that website, and grant announcements are posted to OVW’s Twitter.

This program is authorized by 34 U.S.C. § 12511(e).
