Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Pregnancy Grant

Oregon was awarded a 3-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health. The funds are used to help pregnant and parenting teens and women who are victims of intimate partner violence and who have entered the Child Welfare, Self Sufficiency and/or county public health systems.

IPV and Pregnancy Grant awards fund advocates who are stationed in Child Welfare and Self Sufficiency field offices and county public health departments. Their purpose is to improve victim and survivor access to health and safety resources.
