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


Services to Advocate for and Respond to Youth Grant Program

Program Overview

The Services to Advocate for and Respond to Youth Grant Program is designed to support projects that provide direct counseling, advocacy, legal, and mental health services for children and young adults who have experienced domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. OVW-funded projects will include linguistically, culturally, and community relevant services for underserved populations or linkages to existing services in the community tailored to the needs of underserved populations.

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.
