Consolidated Youth Program

Program Overview

The Consolidated Youth Grant Program funds projects that seek to mitigate the effects of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking on children and youth. Projects employ a continuum of strategies; specifically prevention, intervention, treatment, and response. These strategies include victim services to children and youth exposed to violence, training for professionals to improve interventions and responses, coordinated school-based strategies, support services for non-abusing parents and caregivers, and coordinated community responses to violence targeting children and youth.

Additionally, the program supports projects that utilize multi-faceted prevention strategies that involve community organizing, outreach, public education, and mobilization, to engage men and boys as allies with women and girls in the prevention of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

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.
