In 2019, SAKI awarded Washington, D.C., a grant in the amount of $1,000,000. Funding will be used to conduct forensic genealogy on an estimated 500 cases where sexual assault kits were tested. Funds also will be used to support additional overtime needed to ensure the ability to conduct thorough investigations. A SAKI site coordinator will be hired to track funding, data collection, and testing results.

Our Mission

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.
