October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to help recognize, prevent, and respond to a serious health crisis affecting a tremendous number of women — and men — across the country.
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 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.
FVPSA funding supports the infrastructure and network of national training and technical assistance to help states, communities, and tribes address complex social, legal, medical, and housing needs for victims of domestic violence and their children.
