Family Violence Prevention and Services Discretionary Grants: National and Special Issue Resource Centers - Special Issue Resource Center (SIRC): The Family Violence Prevention and Services Program (FVPSA Program) in the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) will award four cooperative agreements to Special Issue Resources Centers (SIRCs) which shall enhance family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence intervention and prevention efforts in at least one of the following areas: 1) criminal and civil justice systems; 2) child protective services and child custody; 3) health care systems; or 4) mental health systems. Each SIRC shall be national in scope and shall provide comprehensive training and technical assistance (T&TA) to State and local domestic violence service providers, State domestic violence coalitions, State Administrators, national, statewide and local community based organizations, Tribes, tribal organizations, governmental agencies, and other relevant stakeholders.
The purpose of the SIRCs is to positively impact prevention and intervention efforts for domestic violence victims and their families in the four special issue areas by delivering proven, effective T&TA to those individuals, organizations, communities, institutions and systems who come into contact with or serve domestic violence and dating violence victims and their families. SIRCs approaches and efforts must be victim-centered and trauma-informed.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is one of four announcements that will award cooperative agreements to support a nationwide network composed of National Resource Centers, Special Issues Resource Centers, and Culturally Specific Special Issue Resource Centers, focused on the intervention and prevention of family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence.
