The formula grant programs and national services include: The STOP program (VAWA, DOJ), which improves the criminal justice and wider community response by allowing states and communities to develop coordinated community responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking; The Sexual Assault Services Program (VAWA, DOJ), which is the federal government’s only funding source dedicated to sexual assault services and funds rape crisis centers in every state; The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA, HHS), which is the federal government’s only dedicated funding stream for domestic violence shelters and outreach programs; The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA, DOJ), which is a non-taxpayer fund supporting over 4,000 victim services agencies across the nation to help victims deal with the immediate aftermath of a crime; The Rape Prevention and Education Program (RPE, HHS), which supports comprehensive sexual violence prevention in every state for communities and schools; and The National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH) (HHS), which receives approximately half a million contacts per year, Stronghearts Native Helpline (Stronghearts), which serves the specific cultural and jurisdictional needs of native victims of domestic and dating violence, and Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS), which is the only national services program for deaf and hearing-challenged survivors of domestic violence.
VAWA and related discretionary programs complement the state formula grants by propelling innovation and providing targeted responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
Additionally,federal VAWA funds encourage states to leverage local and state funds in the effort to end these pervasive crimes.
VAWA’s work is complemented by VOCA, which funds direct services to victims of all types of crime, including domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking, and by FVPSA, which is our nation’s only dedicated funding source for domestic violence shelters and direct service organizations.
Last year’s modest increases in funding for the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), along with sustained funding released from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) are beginning to address a portion of the gap in direct services.
