Cooperative agreements to USA and territories agencies, Tribal governments and organizations, nonprofit organizations, and IHEs for projects addressing firearms laws and domestic violence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. This pilot project will take a comprehensive, culturally specific approach to addressing firearm relinquishment to enhance victim safety by addressing the nexus of firearms and domestic violence.
Abusers often use or threaten to use firearms against victims of domestic violence, as well as threatening the victim’s children, friends, and relatives. Research demonstrates that when an abuser has access to a firearm, domestic violence is far more likely to be deadly; in fact, an abuser’s access to firearms is the single greatest risk factor for intimate partner homicide, with the risk increasing five-fold. Unfortunately, this risk is widespread. National data describe firearms as the overwhelming weapon of choice in intimate partner homicides. According to the FBI’s most recent Supplementary Homicide Report, more than half (55%) of intimate partner homicides were committed with a firearm in 2015. This figure has remained the same over the past decade; from 2001 to 2012, 55% of women killed by intimate partners were shot with a firearm. In addition to their lethality, firearms are used by abusers to inflict fear, intimidation, and coercive control over victims.
DVHPI funds currently support intensive training and technical assistance through FTAP for six non-funded sites: Birmingham, AL; Columbus, OH; Muskogee Creek Nation, OK; Brooklyn, NY; the state of Vermont; and Spokane, WA (FTAP Sites).
