Grants to Enhance Culturally and Specific Services for Victims of Sexual Assault,Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Program/Underserved
The Culturally and Specific Services Program/Underserved created by the Violence Against Women Act of 2005, will fund projects that promote the maintenance and replication of existing successful domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking community-based programs providing culturally and linguistically specific services and other resources. The program also will support the development of innovative culturally and linguistically specific strategies and projects to enhance access to services and resources for victims of violence against women.
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.
