AmeriCorps NCCC Updated Policies and Procedures Regarding Sexual Assault Allegations

Date Issued
Report Number
Case ID 2019-049
Report Type
The AmeriCorps Office of Inspector General (AmeriCorps OIG) received an allegation that a former Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Corps member with the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) was sexually assaulted while on deployment. It was further alleged that NCCC failed to investigate the allegation or report the allegation to law enforcement, failed to take disciplinary action against the alleged assailant, and removed the member from the NCCC program. AmeriCorps OIG did not investigate or render any findings regarding the validity of the complainant’s sexual assault allegations because complaints of sexual assault fall under the jurisdiction of local law enforcement. However, AmeriCorps OIG conducted an assessment of NCCC’s sexual assault prevention and response program.
