Grants are available to Wisconsin rape crisis centers, community and faith based organizations, and other non-profits to provide support services and related assistance to victims of sexual assault including family and household members. Eligible programs will provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment (e.g., accompanying victims to court, medical facilities, police departments, etc.), support services, and related assistance for adult, youth, and child victims of sexual assault, family and household members of victims, and those collaterally affected by the sexual assault.

By statute, funds under the SASP Formula Grant Program may be used for the following purposes:

Intervention and related assistance may include:

- 24-hour hotline services providing crisis intervention services and referral.
- Accompaniment and advocacy through medical, criminal justice, and social support systems, including medical facilities, police, and court proceedings.
- Crisis intervention, short-term individual and group support services, and comprehensive service coordination and supervision to assist sexual assault victims and family or household members.
- Information and referral to assist the sexual assault victim and family or household members.
- Community-based, linguistically and culturally specific services and support mechanisms, including outreach activities for underserved and population specific communities.
- The development and distribution of materials on issues related to the services described in the previous bullets.

Under the SASP Formula Grant Program, grant funds cannot be used to support:

*Sexual assault forensic examiner projects or criminal justice activities (e.g., law enforcement, prosecution, courts, or forensic interviews) including the development of SART teams.

* All expenses must be new and cannot replace existing state or local government funding.

* Substitution of existing funds with federal grants (supplanting) will be the subject of monitoring and audit.
