The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) is the primary federal funding source dedicated to providing immediate shelter and supportive services for victims of family violence, domestic violence, or dating violence and their dependents. Of the $121,225,253 appropriated to FVPSA in 2013, $12.1 million in FVPSA formula grants were distributed based on population to over 200 Tribes in 26 states. Local tribal domestic violence programs served 30,452 victims of domestic violence and their children in 2013. This is 2.3% of all the clients served by FVPSA-funded programs. Ninety percent (90%) of the adults served were female and ten percent (10%) were male.
