Sexual Assault Victim Assistance Fund


SAVAF funds are to be used to provide financial assistance for any of the following:

  1. To establish and maintain rape crisis centers.
  2. The enhancement of services provided by existing rape crisis centers.
  3. The development, implementation, and expansion of trauma informed sexual assault services.

Money in the fund shall be distributed by CJI but before making a distribution, the victim services division shall seek direction from a statewide nonprofit sexual assault coalition. CJI must also designate 10% of the appropriation made each year to the statewide nonprofit sexual assault coalition.
