The Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN) informs and strengthens domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts at the individual, community, and societal levels. DVRN member organizations are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work collaboratively to promote practices and strategies to improve our nation’s response to domestic violence and make safety and justice a priority.
As part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program joins with its grantees and federal partners to offer a wide range of domestic violence awareness month educational events and activities. We invite you to join us in building awareness and taking action around ending domestic violence.
The Family Violence Prevention and Services Program in the Family Youth and Services Bureau administers Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) funding, the only source of dedicated funding for domestic violence shelter and supportive services since 1984. In FY2016, the appropriation for FVPSA was $101.5 million. This page lists grant awards for FY2016 State Domestic Violence Coalitions.
