Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs to research and identify methods to prevent abuse and provide assistance to victims. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support research programs that align with the following priorities: reducing violent crime against women and promoting victim safety; empowering victims to become survivors; increasing efforts to combat stalking; and addressing the specific challenges that rural communities face in responding to VAWA crimes.
The purpose of the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW)'s Research and Evaluation (R&E) Initiative is to research and evaluate approaches to combating domestic/dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. By generating more knowledge about strategies for serving victims and holding offenders accountable, communities that benefit from Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) funding will be better equipped to align their work with practices that are known to be effective, and they will be more capable of generating empirical knowledge on the efficacy of new and promising ways of doing things. R&E is designed to support researcher-practitioner partnerships and a broad range of methods, including qualitative, mixed-method, and quasi-experimental designs.
OVW is interested in funding research and evaluation to contribute to knowledge in the six areas of study listed below.
This year, OVW invites applications addressing one or more of the topics listed below.
