The Justice for Families Program:
Domestic Violence Mentor Court Initiative creates a unique opportunity to recognize well-established specialized courts and enable them to guide other courts and court-based programs that wish to significantly improve their court responses to domestic violence cases
and ensure victim safety and offender accountability.
For FY 2014, OVW is accepting applications for continuation and new Mentor Court projects.
With funding under the Mentor Court Initiative, OVW will support projects that operate a full-time court system with a specialized process for handling domestic violence cases.
