The Survivors’ Access to Supportive Care Act, S. 926/H.R. 2145 would improve and expand access to sexual assault care by creating a grant program to train new SANE/SAFE in rural and tribal communities, require colleges and universities to provide more information to students about sexual assault care services, and direct HHS to establish a pilot training and continuing education program, to be tested and incorporated nationwide, including in rural areas. In addition, SASCA would lead to state-level surveys to help identify gaps in service areas for survivors of sexual assault.
Survivors need specialized care. We can help them get it.
