NIC: Safety Matters – Managing Relationships in Women’s Facilities

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 19 August 2018

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for the delivery of gender-informed (women), research based training program to prepare correctional staff to implement practical operational strategies to improve women’s physical and sexual safety in a facility.

The focus of this program is providing enhanced tools for corrections practitioners to address potentially dangerous and compromising relationships that can occur within a women’s facility, while supporting the building of healthy and safe relationships.  The training blends Virtual Instructor Lead Training (VILT) with on-site classroom Instructor Lead Training (ILT) with a targeted ILT follow up Training of Staff Trainers (TOT).  Program content is drawn from PREA-related National Institute of Justice and Bureau of Justice Statistics research and data specific to sexual and physical safety in women’s prisons.

The goal of this solicitation is the effective delivery of the established NIC training program Safety Matters: Managing Relationships in Women’s Facilities to approved participant teams representing local, state, federal and tribal corrections agencies that have been actively working toward improving management of justice involved women.


  • Review and become familiar with the established curriculum, lesson plans, presentation slides, participant and trainer manuals, as well as any other adjunct training materials in preparation for program delivery
  • Delivery of program will assist agencies/jurisdictions to:
    • Build upon foundational training in gender-responsive practice, Motivational Interviewing skills, and examine the intent and practical implementation of PREA standards specific to promoting safety in women’s relationships while incarcerated
    • Explore key dynamics of women’s behavior and relationships while incarcerated
    • Embrace the importance of institutional culture in promoting sexual, physical and emotional safety in women’s facilities.
    • Intervene effectively and mitigate inappropriate inmate sexual, physical, emotional relationships and conflicts.
