SASP Formula Grant Program

Program Overview


SASP Formula Grant Program

The SASP Formula Grant Program funds states and territories to support rape crisis centers and other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations, including faith-based and other community organizations, that provide core services, direct intervention, and related assistance to victims of sexual assault. SASP funds are designed to supplement other funding sources directed at addressing sexual assault on the state and territorial level. Rape crisis centers and other nonprofit organizations such as dual programs providing both domestic violence and sexual violence intervention services play a vital role in assisting sexual assault victims through the healing process, as well as assisting victims through the medical, criminal justice, and other social support systems.

Progress Reporting Update

In 2024, MEI and OVW will launch a web-based tool for progress reporting. Due to this change in the formula reporting process, SASP Formula administrators will be required to submit subgrantee data directly to VAWA MEI via the new progress reporting tool by June 30, 2024. Administrators need to download their reporting form from this website (click on “SASP Formula Administrator Reporting Form” below) and submit their administrators form as an attachment in JustGrants by June 30, 2024.

MEI and OVW hosted an announcement webinar on October 26, 2023. Please scroll to the Reporting Tools section of this page to find a link to a recording of that webinar, Formula Admins Update: 2023 Webinar.

In early 2024, VAWA MEI will provide multiple training opportunities to orient state administrators to this process including live webinars, training videos, and ongoing technical assistance via phone, email, and video.
