Tribal Domestic Violence Services: FVPSA Fact Sheet

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. All federally recognized tribes are eligible to apply for FVPSA Tribal Formula grants as individual sovereign nations or as consortia of tribes joined together. Typically, the largest number of tribes funded are in Alaska and California (between 45 to 70 tribes), followed by Nevada, Oklahoma, and Washington (13 to 23 tribes). All other states have fewer than ten tribes funded through FVPSA.
