Sexual Assault Services Formula Grant Program is the first federal funding stream solely dedicated to the provision of direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault.The SASP Formula Grant Program directs grant dollars to states and territories to assist them in supporting rape crisis centers and other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations or tribal programs that provide services, direct intervention, and related assistance to victims of sexual assault.Funds provided through SASP are designed to supplement other funding sources directed at addressing sexual assault on the state and territorial level.State and Territorial Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Coalitions Program provides grants to each state domestic violence coalition (determined by the Department of Health and Human Services) and sexual assault coalition (determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) for the purposes of coordinating victim services activities and collaborating and coordinating with federal, state, and local entities engaged in addressing violence against women.Eligible applicants must meet the statutory definition of a “tribal coalition.” Return to the Top Consolidated Grant Program to Address Children and Youth Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Assault and Engage Men and Boys as Allies creates a unique opportunity for communities to increase collaboration among non-profit victim service providers, violence prevention programs, and child and youth organizations serving victims ages 0-24.Additionally, it supports organizations and programs that promote boys’ and men’s role in combating violence against women and girls.
Four programs are "formula," meaning the enacting legislation specifies how the funds are to be distributed.

The message must be clear that treating people in abusive ways will not be accepted, and policies must enforce this message to keep students safe.
