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 formula grants are distributed through states and territories then provided through a sub-awardee process to local public, private, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations to provide shelter and non-residential supportive services to individuals experiencing domestic violence and their children. All federally recognized tribes are eligible to apply for FVPSA Tribal Formula grants.
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.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline, funded by FYSB, is a compassionate, knowledgeable resource focused on shifting power back to those experiencing domestic or dating violence through human connection and practical help every day of the year.
