Grants to USA and territories health and nursing centers and clinics, hospitals, nursing schools, nonprofit organizations, CBOs, faith-based organizations, and Tribal entities to provide improved care and services for survivors of assault. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The ANE-SANE program funds advanced nursing education to train and certify Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), and Forensic Nurses (FNs) to practice as sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs).

The program aims to increase the supply and distribution of qualified working SANEs and expand access to sexual assault forensic examinations. By expanding access to SANEs, the ANE-SANE program aims to provide better physical and mental health care for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence leading to better evidence collection and potentially higher prosecution rates.

The ANE-SANE program is designed to:

  1. Increase the supply and distribution of SANEs by increasing the number of RNs, APRNs and FNs trained to practice as SANEs;
  2. Expand access to sexual assault forensic examinations by increasing availability of training and supporting certification of qualified SANEs who are skilled and knowledgeable in providing quality care to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, especially in rural and underserved settings;
  3. Enhance stakeholder support for training and increase retention of SANEs, to ensure the provision of better physical and mental health care of survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence and improved evidence collection; and
  4. Cultivate an environment conducive to SANE training and practice through partnerships and technical assistance consultation. 

This program will build upon HHS and HRSA’s current strategic goals to strengthen and expand the health care workforce to meet America’s diverse needs, and improve access to quality health care services. It is expected that applicants will address the first priority below, and if applicable, also address the second priority:

  • Transforming the workforce –by targeting the need
  • Strengthening health care access through telehealth 

Section 805 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 296d) requires a preference for applicants with projects that will substantially benefit rural or underserved populations, or help meet public health nursing needs in State or local health departments. Applicants receiving the preference will be placed in a more competitive position among applications that can be funded.
