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.
