Grants to Assist Children and Youth Exposed to Violence Program

Program Overview

The Children and Youth Exposed to Violence Grant Program funds projects that seek to mitigate the effects of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking on children and youth exposed to violence and reduce the risk of future victimization or perpetration of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

The program supports projects that provide services for children exposed to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking including direct counseling, advocacy, or mentoring. Projects must include support for the non-offending parent or caretaker. The program also supports training, coordination and advocacy for programs that serve children and youth on how to safely and confidentially identify children and families experiencing domestic violence and properly refer them to programs that can provide direct services and coordinate with domestic violence and sexual assault victim service providers.

As a result of VAWA 2000, all grant recipients are statutorily required to report on the effectiveness of their projects, and the Attorney General must report to Congress on the effectiveness of each grant program. Therefore, grantees funded under this program must collect and maintain data that measures their effectiveness. Grantees are required to submit a Semi-Annual Progress Report.
