VAWA Grant

S.T.O.P. Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
Grant Information

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), signed into law by President Clinton in 1994, has resulted in innovative legislation that combines tough penalties for offenders and assistance to women who have been victims of violent crime. This comprehensive approach to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking provides a substantial commitment of federal resources for police, prosecution, prevention, and victim services to communities throughout the country. The primary funding source under VAWA is the S.T.O.P. Violence Against Women formula grant program administered by the Violence Against Women Office, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. S.T.O.P. stands for Services, Training, Officers, and Prosecutors; the necessary elements to effect change within the criminal justice system. The goal of the STOP program is to encourage States to develop a partnership between the courts, victim advocates, service providers, prosecution and law enforcement for the purpose of reducing violent crimes against women and enhancing victim services.

VOCA FFY24 Competitive RFP

Overview of the Victims of Crime Act In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). This act established a separate account within the United States Treasury known as the Crime Victims Fund. The money which makes up this fund comes entirely from fines, penalty assessments, forfeited appearance bonds, all collected by the Federal Government. The Fund provides for VOCA Compensation and Victim Assistance grants to all states and territories. Forty-nine percent of the money deposited into the Fund is used to make annual grants to eligible state crime victim compensation programs. The amount of VOCA Compensation funds a state receives is based on 60 percent of the amount awarded by that state to victims of crime in the previous federal fiscal year. Compensation grants can only be used to pay reparation to victims of crime as allowed by a state’s statutes. With increases in the amount of applications received by the Crime Victims Reparation Commission and increases in the amount of funds paid out to victims in New Mexico each year, the federal compensation moneys are providing much needed and appreciated assistance. The Fund also provides annual victim assistance grants. Each state receives a base amount of $500,000.00. Any remaining money is distributed among the states with the amounts dependent on a state’s population. The New Mexico Crime Victims Reparation Commission is responsible for administering the assistance grants. This money is sub granted to organizations throughout the State of New Mexico to enhance, expand, and develop new programs to serve victims of crime. These services include counseling, providing shelter, assistance in filing compensation applications, crisis intervention services, assistance in court proceedings, assistance in filing elderly abuse petitions or restraint orders, etc.
