Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Through FY 2017 Stand Down Grant Requests, 43408 [2017-19664]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 43408 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 178 / Friday, September 15, 2017 / Notices unsubmitted and untested kits have emerged in jurisdictions across the country (e.g., Peterson and Hickman, 2005; Strom et al., 2009). The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) established the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) to provide assistance to jurisdictions who are addressing these issues. In FY 2015, 20 sites were funded through SAKI to engage in reforms intended to improve the national response to sexual assault cases. The objectives of the current study are to conduct an evaluability assessment of all 20 FY 2015 sites to determine their readiness to participate in an evaluation of the SAKI and to develop a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation plan to ultimately determine the extent to which SAKI reforms have resulted in intended (and/or unintended) system changes. The evaluability assessment data collection process will include visits to the 20 sites, which will be comprised of individual and group interviews with a maximum of 20 respondents per site. The types of respondents who will be asked to respond to requests for interviews will include the SAKI Site Coordinator, representatives from sectors involved in working groups (e.g., law enforcement, forensic medical personnel, forensic laboratory personnel, prosecutors, victim advocates, victim treatment providers), specialized staff (e.g., cold case detectives, police administrative support, victim compensation staff). 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: The estimated average burden for a respondent completing a site visit interview is approximately 60 minutes. A maximum of 20 respondents will be interviewed, either individually or in groups, at each of the 20 sites. Therefore, the total number of estimated respondents for the entire evaluability site visit data collection is 400 (20 sites × 20 respondents per site). 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The maximum estimated public burden associated with this collection is 400 hours. It is estimated that each of the 400 site visit interviews will take 60 minutes to complete (400 respondents × 60 minutes = 400 hours).

certain circumstances where a federal major disaster has been declared, 
to allow entities proposing to conduct Stand Down events in areas 
impacted by those disasters to apply for funds in amounts up to

writing, entities proposing to conduct Stand Down events (1) within 
those designated counties where a federal major disaster has been 
declared by the President, or (2) in geographical areas to which a

relocated, may apply for a one-time request for funds in amounts up to

awarded subject to availability of funding. The general maximum award 
amounts of $10,000 per applicant per fiscal year for multiple day Stand 
Down events, or $7,000 for one day events, will not apply to such 
requests for designated counties where a federal major disaster has 
been declared by the President. Acceptable uses of Stand Down grant
