Grants to Support Tribal Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions

Program Overview

This discretionary grant program is designed for increasing awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault against American Indian and Alaska native women, enhancing the response to such violence at the tribal, Federal, and state levels, and providing technical assistance to coalition membership and tribal communities. Eligible applicants are established nonprofit, nongovernmental tribal coalitions addressing domestic violence and sexual assault against American Indian and Alaska Native women and individuals or organizations that propose to incorporate as nonprofit, nongovernmental tribal coalitions.

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.
