Funding Announcement: Project Catalyst, Phase III
Futures Without Violence (FUTURES) is soliciting applications for Phase III of Project Catalyst. Project Catalyst fosters leadership and collaboration at the state or territory level to improve the health and safety outcomes for survivors of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Human Trafficking (HT) as well as promotes prevention efforts.
FUTURES will award three states/territories $75,000 each to develop a leadership team consisting of a Primary Care Association (PCA), a Department of Health (DH) and a Domestic Violence Coalition (DVC). The leadership teams will work closely with FUTURES and with each other to promote state/territory-level policy and systems changes that support an integrated and improved response to IPV and human trafficking in community health centers and to offer health advocacy services in domestic violence advocacy programs. Teams will implement an action plan to train and engage at least 50% of the HRSA-funded health centers in their state/territory by the end of the project period.
Applications due: Friday, November 8, 2019 by 8 p.m. ET
Period of funding: December 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020
New Funding Announcement Q&A Webinar: Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 1–2 p.m. ET
