STOP VAWA Implementation Plan for Oregon

Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) approved the FY 2014 - 2016 Implementation Plan and appendices for use effective July 1, 2014.

A new FY 2017 - 2019 STOP VAWA Implementation Plan for Oregon is currently in the development phase. The DOJ CVSD Advisory Committee, Statewide Implementation Planning Subcommittee, along with representatives from underserved populations, population specific organizations, the 9 Federally-recognized Tribes, and interested stakeholders will be included in the planning process. The new IP will be open to public comment for a period of 60 days prior to submission for federal approval. If you would like to be included in the planning process please contact Diana Fleming at Diana.L.Fleming@doj.state.or.us or Alisha Goodwin at Alisha.Goodwin@doj.state.or.us.

The IP must be submitted to the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) every three years. The IP demonstrates a comprehensive, coordinated plan that reflects the strengths and needs of the state in regards to use of STOP VAWA Formula Grant Funds.

STOP VAWA funds are received from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and allocated to law enforcement (25%), prosecution (25%), courts (5%), and non-profit, non-governmental victim services providers (45%) to reduce violent crimes against women. Funds are allocated through a two-year competitive application process for law enforcement and prosecution and a non-competitive process for courts. The victim service and discretionary allocation categories are included in the non-competitive joint application process. The following programs received competitive or non-competitive funds in FY 2015 - 2017:

The CVSD Advisory Committee and Implementation Planning Subcommittee made it a priority to serve sexual assault victims, and set a 25% sexual assault set-aside, in which more than 30% of the total VAWA funding allocated to subgrantees ($ 512,834 in fiscal year 2015) goes to support sexual assault services.

STOP VAWA funds are not awarded to individuals.
