Grant Description
Grants to USA nonprofit coalitions for programs to support victims of domestic violence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several days to complete. Funding is intended to reduce incidents of domestic violence, increase services for victims, provide training to service providers, increase public awareness, and improve refuge facilities for victims and their dependents.

This FVPSA FOA, administered through ACYF’s FYSB, is designed to assist coalitions in their efforts “to confirm the federal commitment to reducing domestic violence; to urge states, localities, cities, and the private sector to improve the responses to and the prevention of domestic violence and encourage stakeholders and service providers to plan toward an integrated service delivery approach that meets the needs of all victims, including those in underserved communities; to provide for technical assistance and training relating to domestic violence programs; and to increase public awareness about and prevention of domestic violence and increase the quality and availability of shelter and supportive services for victims of domestic violence and their dependents” (45 CFR § 1370.20(a)).

In support of FYSB’s priorities, awards governed by this FOA and other current FY expenditures are designed to ensure that effective interventions and trauma-informed practices are in place to build skills and capacities that contribute to the healthy, positive, productive, functioning of individuals and families. An important component of promoting social and emotional well-being includes addressing the impact of trauma, which can have a profound effect on the overall functioning of victims of family violence, domestic violence, dating violence and their dependents.

For information on Coordinated and Accessible Services, see:

Given the unique needs of victims of trafficking, FVPSA-funded programs are strongly encouraged to safely screen for and identify victims of human trafficking who are also victims or survivors of domestic violence or dating violence and provide services that support their unique needs (45 CFR § 1370.10(d)).

Coalitions are required to attend FVPSA-sponsored in-person and/or virtual conferences or meetings (which may include FVPSA’s Tribal Grantee meeting, FVPSA’s regional grantee meetings, peer-to-peer mentoring meetings, or FVPSA’s bi-annual grantee meetings) as directed by the FVPSA program throughout the grant’s project period. Grant recipients may send up to two participants for the in-person events, one of whom must be the coalition's Executive Director or a person whose job responsibility is similar to that of an Executive Director.
