The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) Discretionary Grant Program seeks one grantee to enhance and expand the capacity of FVPSA formula grantees – state FVPSA administrators and state/territory domestic violence coalitions.
For this grant program, one grantee will be expected
to provide 1) topic-specific training and technical assistance at a national level and 2) intensive training and technical assistance at the state or territory level.
The national training and technical assistance topics, and the identified formula grantee recipients of the intensive technical assistance, will be identified through:
formula grantee needs assessments; program monitoring by FVPSA staff; and the selected grantee’s internal processes for identifying needed topics and selected grantees.
The training and technical assistance will focus on programmatic and administrative functions to build the capacity of FVPSA formula grantees, such as dissemination of FVPSA regulations and guidance, understanding roles and responsibilities of programmatic monitoring of local programs, incorporation of best practices, building the management capacity of organizations, and building partnerships within the state or territory which includes culturally-specific organizations and tribes.
The grantee will participate in ongoing coordination and collaboration with the FVPSA-funded resource centers, collectively known as the Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN).
