To apply for attendance at the 3rd Annual National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Grantees Meeting, please complete the following form by February 23rd, 2018.
The annual National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) Grantees Meeting is an event for all Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) SAKI and New York County DANY awardees to provide an opportunity for information sharing and deriving policies with their peers for sustainable, national change for an improved sexual assault response. This year jurisdictions and agencies that are engaged in sexual assault response, but are not current SAKI or DANY grantees, are invited to send up to two individuals to attend this event. Space for non-SAKI or DANY attendees is limited and will be based on an application process. The application should summarize jurisdiction or agency concerns regarding current sexual assault response policy and practice, any activities conducted to address those concerns, challenges faced while implementing sexual assault reform, and the expected benefits from attending this meeting. As SAKI encourages a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to sexual assault reform, applicants may send representation from different disciplines. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by February 28th, 2018. Please note, travel expenses for selected attendees will not be covered for this event, and must be assumed by the applying agency or jurisdiction.
To be considered for attendance, the names and associated agencies of potential attendees must be provided as well as a letter of support or approval from the respective agency leadership. This letter should clearly state approval for participation and associated travel costs. Applicants may also attach any additional supportive documentation to the application.
Federal employees are encouraged to attend the event and should contact SAKI TTA directly for more information on how to register (email@example.com).
