The Sex Offense Set Aside (SOSA) Grant Program is a funding stream that grants and contracts and provides technical assistance to Sexual Violence Programs (SVP) that are implementing primary prevention strategies that meet the requirements contained in the New Jersey Sexual Violence Primary Prevention Plan of 2009. 

SOSA funds are combined with Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) funds to support SVP's that focus at least 75% of grant activities on policy and social norms change strategies and related coalition building and community mobilization efforts.  A maximum of 25% of grant time and resources may be spent on single dose outreach and awareness-raising activities.
