Description:

The Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family Youth Services Bureau announces the availability and request for applications for its FY 2004 Family Violence Prevention and Services discretionary grants. Legislative Authority The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (the Act) was originally enacted in sections 301a??313 of Title III of the "Child Abuse Amendments of 1984" (P.L. 98a??457, 10/9/84). The Act was reauthorized and otherwise amended by the "Child Abuse Prevention, Adoptions, and Family Services Act of 1988" (P.L. 100a??294, 4/25/88); the "Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Adoption, and Family Services Act of 1992" (P.L. 102a??295, 5/28/92); the "Safe Homes for Women Act of 1994," Subtitle B of the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994" (P.L. 103a??322, 9/13/94); and the "Child Abuse and Prevention Treatment Act Amendments of 1996" (P.L. 104a??235, 10/3/96); and the "Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000" (P.L. 106a??386, 10/28/00). The Act was most recently amended by the "Keeping Children and Families Safe Act of 2003" (P.L. 108-36). Purpose: The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Bureau of Runaway and Homeless Youth, will seek proposals for the following objectives: (1) to provide technical assistance to FVPSA grant administrators on issues that inhibit the development of programs and services to immigrant victims of family violence and their children; (2) to develop collaborative responses and to provide cross a??training to enhance responses to immigrant victims of family violence and their families; and (3) to develop policies and protocols that increase the scope, operation and linkages between domestic violence service providers and organizations serving immigrant communities. Moreover, submitted proposals must assure that their activities promote cultural competency that meets the cultural and socioeconomic context of immigrant victims and their children. Background: Recent census data confirms significant increases in immigration populations across the United States, including increases in many States that previously had relatively low numbers of immigrants. Because of this population increases there is a need to support the expansion of programs that serve the complex needs of immigrant victims of domestic violence and their children. It is essential that collaborations providing domestic violence services be established with organizations that have established trust with immigrant communities, have access to women and children in those communities, and understand the need for culturally competent services to immigrant victims. Minimum Requirements: Propose a technical assistance strategy available to FVPSA State grant administrators that will effectively, and with cultural competency, improves their services to immigrant domestic violence victims and their children. Identify a partnership with immigrant community based organizations, and organizations representing the interest of immigrants, in order to provide information and assistance on legal issues and immigration law. Develop interagency protocols that create an opportunity for immigrant victims to identify the services they require and receive assistance within the complexity of their multiple issues. Such issues may include public benefits, protection orders, legal advocacy, custody issues and questions, and immigration status. Provide for an evaluation of the effectiveness of the collaborative efforts. Include in the final report a description of the protocols developed to assist in responding to the needs of the immigrant community and the more effective delivery of services.
