Who administers SASP funds across the United States? What else do they do?
Facilitating connections and asking questions is at the heart of how the Resource Sharing Project (RSP) offers TA. To that end, RSP created this SASP Administration Snapshot to capture the landscape of administrating agencies right now. What we have found is that the SASP administrator community is wonderfully diverse. Administrators work in a range of governmental offices, and they oversee many types of state and federal funds. No two administrators’ experiences are the same. Even though administrators’ experiences are all different, having this snapshot is still valuable. It can help administrators know who might have a similar experience. And it can help administrators identify peers with a fresh perspective. Understanding the range of experiences also provides context for any tips people share on peer community calls.
What’s in this resource? What isn’t?
Our goal with this resource was to create an easy-to-scan document that answers frequently asked questions. This snapshot includes:
- contact information for state and territorial administrating agencies
- a simple chart showing the funding streams the agency administers
- information about state and territory budget line items specifically for sexual assault and domestic violence services
- information about the agency’s experience administering Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) discretionary funds
In reviewing the data shared with us, RSP decided to omit some information. Most notable is the removal of individual administrators’ names and contact information. Between the time people submitted data and publishing, several administrators changed. At this rate, the facts in the snapshot would become outdated too quickly. If you would like to find contact information for individual administrators, please visit the interactive map on RSP’s website.
It is also important to note that administrators self-reported this data. RSP did its best to clarify any confusing items and OVW provided additional context. However, it was outside of our scope to verify budget line items. Therefore, we urge administrators to assume these numbers are estimates and may change. Please be sure to contact your peer administrators before referring to these numbers in an official capacity.
The data in this resource was last updated in mid-2021.
