Navigating the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program

A Guide for State and Territorial Administrators
December 21, 2012

This guide will assist state and territorial administrators in working with FVPSA grants.

Guidance from FYSB on FVPSA CARES Act Supplemental Award funding for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. 

The Family Violence Prevention and Services Program provides primary federal funding for domestic violence shelters and supportive services and seeks qualified practitioners and experts to serve as peer reviewers and panel chairpersons for the following federal Discretionary Grant Programs supported by the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act.

Questions include: What is the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA)? Are battered immigrants eligible for emergency/immediate shelter and supportive services funded by FVPSA? Are there any immigration restrictions included in FVPSA? Has HHS designated FVPSA funds as a federal public benefit requiring verification of immigration status? Is this placing new requirements on FVPSA grantees/sub-awardees? and Are there other FVPSA or legal requirements that apply to serving battered immigrants?

 

In August, the Division of Family Violence Prevention and Services (FVPSA Program) along with the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) hosted the Tribal Peer-to-Peer Meeting in Denver.

New guidance from FYSB on allowable use of funds and reporting instructions related to the FY2020 CARES Act.
