Grant to a USA nonprofit organization to design and execute a program to protect youth amateur athletes from all forms of abuse. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to support the development of investigatory tools, educational materials, and training policies and programs that can prevent and address abuse.

The Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) seeks applicants to design and implement a program that aims to safeguard amateur athletes through the prevention of sexual, physical and emotional abuse in the athletic programs of the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, each national governing body and each Paralympic sports organization. The SMART Office is responsible for, among other activities, assisting states, the District of Columbia, territories and tribal jurisdictions with developing and/or enhancing programs designed to implement the requirements of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, and promoting innovation and best practices in preventing and protecting the public from sexual violence.

Goals: The goal of the KYAS program is to assist athletic programs of the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, each national governing body and each Paralympic sports organization.

Objectives: The objective of the KYAS program is to help prevent the occurrence of abuse and to protect young athletes from abuse in sports.

Deliverables: The KYAS program deliverables include the development and dissemination of the necessary educational materials, investigatory tools, training for athletic program personnel and model policies for athletic programs, and conducting audits and compliance reviews that can prevent abuse, and work to address abuse, once identified. Grantees must report allegations of sexual and physical abuse and comply with applicable state and federal reporting requirements regarding child abuse, including sexual abuse.

To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process to be eligible for FY 2021 DOJ discretionary grant funding. To become certified, the law enforcement agency must meet two mandatory conditions: 1) the agency’s use of force policies adhere to all applicable federal, state and local laws; and 2) the agency’s use of force policies prohibit chokeholds except in situations where use of deadly force is allowed by law. The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward.
