The Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) is launching a new multi-state initiative, Project Connect: A Coordinated Public Health Initiative to Prevent Violence against Women, supported by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office on Women’s Health (OWH). This initiative is a result of funding from the Violence against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005.
The FVPF is working with the OWH to identify and partner with statewide teams to develop policy and public heath responses to domestic and sexual violence in women’s health programs. They are inviting proposals now to work with on this exciting new initiative. The period of funding is for March 2010 through August 30, 2011. Applications are due by February 8, 2010.
