ABSTRACT

Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) [April 3, 2019]   [open pdf - 436KB]

From the Document: "FVPSA [Family Violence Prevention and Services Act] focuses on providing temporary shelter and services for survivors, as well as supporting children exposed to domestic and teen dating violence. The law currently authorizes three major activities--the National Domestic Violence Hotline (hotline); domestic violence shelters, services, and related program support; and the Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA) program. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS') Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) administers funding for the hotline and domestic violence shelters and services. The CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], also within HHS, administers DELTA. FVPSA authorized funding for these activities through FY2015. Funds have subsequently been appropriated through FY2019. Table 1 shows an increase in funding over time."
