DOJ, LEPC Make Funds Available for Violence Against Women Grants

United States Department of Justice

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office for Violence Against Women makes STOP (2016) Grant Program funds available to the territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands. These revenues are the result of Title IV of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, reauthorized in 2001, 2005 and 2013. Funding is based on a statutory formula.

The DOJ Office of Violence Against Women in conjunction with The Law Enforcement Planning Commission (LEPC) now accepts applications from private/ non-profit organizations and Virgin Islands Government agencies (local court, law enforcement and prosecution) for programs designed to provide direct services to female victims of violent crime to include domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence.

Programs should seek to implement comprehensive strategies to address violence against women that are sensitive to the needs and safety of the victims and hold offenders accountable for their crime.
