Domestic Violence Services, 2014 FVPSA State and Tribal Grantees
The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) provides the primary federal funding stream dedicated to providing immediate shelter and supportive services for victims of family violence, domestic violence or dating violence and their dependents. Of the $135 million appropriated to FVPSA in 2015, over $95.5 million FVPSA formula grants were distributed based on population to every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and four U.S. territories. In addition, $13.5 million was awarded to over 200 Tribes. The FVPSA State and Tribal Grants fund close to 1,600 domestic violence shelters and 1,300 non-residential service sites. Each year local domestic violence programs, including Tribal programs, serve about 1.3 million victims of domestic violence and their children. In 2013, ninety-two percent (92.5 percent) of the adults served were female and eight percent (7.5 percent) were male.
