STOP Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Fund

STOP VAWA Implentation Plan for Oregon

OVW extended the use of state implementation plans through June 30, 2014 due to the passage of the VAWA Reauthorization Act of 2013. The FY 2014 – 2016 STOP VAWA Implementation Plan for Oregon will be submitted as required by OVW by March 20, 2014.

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.

A total of 13 programs received 2013 and 2014 STOP VAWA Competitive grant funding ($1,760,639) and the Oregon Judicial Department received $174,756:

A total of 33 programs received victim service and discretionary allocation funds for FY 2013 – 2015.

The nine federally recognized Tribal Nations are included in the 2013 – 2015 non-competitive joint application for domestic and sexual violence funds.  CVSD is currently working with Tribal Nations to finalize their grant applications in CVSD E-Grants and will update the summary list of awards once this process has been completed.

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 25% of the total VAWA funding allocated to subgrantees ($475,217 in fiscal year 2013) goes to support sexual assault services.

STOP VAWA funds are not awarded to individuals.
