Documenting the impact OVW grants make on women, their families, and their communities.

Grants to State Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Coalitions Program

Program Overview

Grants are awarded to a domestic violence coalition and a sexual assault coalition in each state or territory for the purposes of coordinating state victim services activities and collaborating and coordinating with Federal, state, and local entities engaged in violence against women activities. In some states and territories, these grants are awarded to dual coalitions, that is, coalitions that address both sexual and domestic violence.

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.
