Programs Serving Domestic Violence Victims/Survivors
Through the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program, the Family and Youth Services Bureau of HHS awards grants to State agencies, Territories and Indian Tribes for the provision of shelter to victims of family violence and their dependents, and for related services, such as emergency transportation and child care. These funds supplement many already established community-based family violence prevention and services activities. They also allow States and Tribes to expand current service programs and establish additional services in rural and underserved areas, on Native American reservations, and in Alaskan Native Villages.
