ABSTRACT

Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) [Updated July 27, 2022]   [open pdf - 572KB]

From the Overview of FVPSA: "FVPSA [Family Violence Prevention and Services Act] supports temporary shelter and services for survivors, as well as children exposed to domestic and teen dating violence. The law currently authorizes three major activities: domestic violence shelters, victim services, and program support; the National Domestic Violence Hotline; 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. The statute authorized funding for these activities through FY2015; however, subsequent appropriations acts have continued to provide funding."
