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.

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?
