The Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault was a statewide organization dedicated to eliminating sexual violence in Indiana.

In an unexpected announcement, the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault said it was suspending its operations and laid off all of its staff because of overdue taxes dating back to 2012.

“We have made every effort to pay those taxes, however, we are still in a shortfall,” a statement on INCASA’s website reads.

INCASA officials say their goal is to pay off the remaining taxes so that existing grant funds can be released and distributed to grantees and creditors.

Calls made to INCASA for comment were unanswered.

INCASA was the state’s primary resource for sexual assault awareness, made up of a coalition of rape crisis centers and prevention programs across the state.

INCASA’s main role was a support center for those programs by providing resources, funds and training. It also connected sexual assault survivors with programs to assist them in their recovery.
