For the past several years, Congress has dedicated millions of dollars for a grant program to address the backlog of untested rape kits. The Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) provides funding for local and state jurisdictions to count and test backlogged rape kits, investigate and prosecute cases, and re-engage survivors in the criminal justice process.
