Family Violence Prevention and Services Discretionary Grants: National Capacity Building Center on Safe and Supportive Housing for Domestic Violence Survivors

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Family Violence Prevention and Services (FVPSA) Program seeks to award one cooperative agreement under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act to one National Capacity Building Center for Safe and Supportive


Housing for Domestic Violence Survivors (Center) focused on developing and delivering comprehensive training and technical assistance to enhance safe, supportive, and sustainable housing for survivors of domestic violence.

A cooperative agreement is an award instrument used when substantial involvement is anticipated between the awarding office and the grantee during performance of the contemplated project.

FYSB will collaborate with the grantee throughout the project period.

The primary purpose of the Center is to strengthen coordination between domestic violence, housing, and homeless services providers, including convening, coordinating, and leading a national consortium of federally-funded training and technical assistance providers.

The Center will develop resources for integrating responses to the complex and diverse needs of domestic violence survivors throughout the crisis-response system, including assessment, safety planning, voluntary and flexible supportive services, and access to emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent housing.

Additionally, the Center will develop and disseminate resources related to the effect of the opioid epidemic and substance use coercion on access to safe housing and the capacity of faith communities to help domestic violence survivors to achieve and maintain housing stability.

The Center will be part of a network of National, Special Issue, Culturally Specific, and Capacity Building Resource Centers providing leadership, training, technical assistance, resources, and support to programs and systems serving victims of domestic violence and their children.
