OVW FY 2012 Consolidated Grant and Technical Assistance Program to Address Children and Youth Experiencing Domestic And Sexual Violence and Engage Men and Boys as Allies

4 09 2012

Here’s another example of a federal consolidated grant program that combines 4 grants into a single competition-a trend I blogged about in a previous post-

“The Consolidated Grant and Technical Assistance Program to Address Children and Youth Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Violence and Engage Men and Boys as Allies, hereafter referred to as the Consolidated Grant Program, supports activities that were previously funded under the following four OVW grant programs: Grants to Assist Children and Youth Exposed to Violence Program (CEV); Services to Advocate for and Respond to Youth Program (Youth Services); Services, Training, Education and Policies to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking in Secondary Schools Grant Program (STEP); and the Engaging Men in Preventing Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Program (Engaging Men). The Consolidated Grant Program creates a unique opportunity for communities to increase collaboration among non-profit victim service providers; violence prevention and child- and youth-serving organizations; organizations and programs that support men’s role in combating violence against women and girls; schools; and tribal and local government agencies. This program has two primary purposes and supports projects that implement one or both of these areas. First, the program supports comprehensive child- and youth-centered prevention and intervention projects that maximize community-based efforts and evidence-informed practices to more fully address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. Comprehensive projects supported under this solicitation must address a continuum of strategies, specifically, prevention, intervention, treatment and response. These strategies include victim services to children and youth exposed to violence; training for professionals to improve interventions and responses; coordinated school-based strategies; supportive services for non-offending parents; and coordinated community responses to violence targeting children and youth. This solicitation refers to these projects as “Comprehensive Projects.”Second, the program supports multi-faceted prevention strategies that involve community organizing, outreach, public education and mobilization that utilize men as influencers of other men and boys and encourages them to work as allies with women and girls to prevent domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. This solicitation refers to these projects as “Engaging Men and Boys Projects.”Technical Assistance-The technical assistance portion of this solicitation will support comprehensive training and technical assistance to the grantees awarded under this solicitation. The technical assistance to be provided must be able to meet the diverse needs of the eligible entities, as well as, provide training and capacity building to help grantees address specific issues and all purpose areas within the scope of the Consolidated Grant program.”
