Grants to Nevada nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and tribal governments to address violent crimes against women and children. Funding is intended to support a coordinated community response to dating violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and other crimes.

The purpose of SASP is to provide intervention, advocacy and accompaniment (e.g., court, medical facilities, police departments, etc.), support services, and related assistance to:
- Adult, youth and child victims of sexual assault;
- Family and household members of such victims; and
- Those collaterally affected by the victimization (e.g., friends, co-workers, classmates).

In this Fiscal Year, funds under SASP may be used for the establishment, maintenance and expansion of rape crisis centers and other nongovernmental or tribal programs and projects to assist individuals who have been victimized by sexual assault, without regard to the age of the individual.

SASP Grant funds shall be used by states and territories for rape crisis centers and other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations or tribal entities for programs and activities that provide direct intervention and related assistance. Pursuant to 34 U.S.C. § 12511(b)(2)(C), intervention and related assistance may include:
1. 24 hour hotline services providing crisis intervention services and referral;
2. Accompaniment and advocacy through medical, criminal justice and social support systems including medical facilities, police and court proceedings;
3. 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;
4. Information and referral to assist the sexual assault victim and family or household members;
5. Community-based, culturally specific services and support mechanisms, including outreach activities for underserved communities and
6. Development and distribution of materials on issues related to the services described in numbers 1 through 5 above.
