announcement has multiple priority areas. Specialized Outreach
Demonstration Projects for Services to Underserved and Diverse Populations:
In order to further the commitment to bring diverse voices and approaches to
the discussions on the elimination of domestic violence, the Administration
on Children, Youth and Families announces grant funds to support projects
that convene researchers, activists, survivors of domestic violence, and
practitioners who have been advocates of a more culturally appropriate and
familial orientation to the elimination of domestic violence. The
Administration on Children, Youth and Families seeks to support coordinated
outreach efforts to underserved and diverse communities, of which each
effort is staffed and/or supported by expert and multi-disciplined teams
that are culturally responsive and competent in regard to the issue of
domestic violence in their particular communities. On a nationwide basis
the expertise assembled within the Special Outreach projects will offer
assistance on resource accumulation and information, capacity building
within community organizations, policy analysis and review, training, and
technical assistance for public and private organizations providing service
in the domestic violence community. This assistance will be available to
the entire domestic violence community as well as the specific communities
to be served by these demonstration projects. Domestic Violence/Runaway and
Homeless Youth Collaborations on the Prevention of Adolescent Dating
Violence: The collaboration of the Runaway Youth and Domestic Violence
communities will foster the development and implementation of effective
strategies and program requirements for the use of domestic violence
prevention services concurrently with services provided through Basic
Center, Transitional Living and Street Outreach Projects. These
collaborations will help to eliminate adolescent dating violence. These
collaborative efforts will focus on the youth who are identified within the
domestic violence and runaway and homeless youth communities as individuals
that may be responsive to a collaborative set of interventions that are
useful as effective prevention and intervention strategies. Minority
Training Grant Stipends in Domestic Violence for Historically Black,
Hispanic-Serving, and Tribal Colleges and Universities: The Minority
Training Grant Stipends to Historically Black, Hispanic Serving, and Tribal
Colleges and Universities will assist in generating skill-building and
training opportunities in domestic violence prevention and services. These
projects will be particularly responsive to issues of cultural content and
designed to increase the extent to which minority groups participate in the
domestic violence service community. A substantial proportion of the
domestic violence that occurs in the general population involves underserved
populations, including populations that are underserved because of ethnic,
racial, cultural, language diversity or geographic isolation. The purpose of
this effort and priority area is to increase the numbers and the capacity of
the advocates and allies to do the work that is needed in these communities
to prevent domestic violence.
