Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Grant Program

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was designed to improve the criminal justice responses to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking and to increase the availability of services for victims of these crimes. The Office of Crime Victim Services (OCVS) administers two VAWA formula grants from the US Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women: the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, and Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grant and the Sexual Assault Service Formula Program (SASP).
