This announcement solicits proposals for a National Evaluation of the Violence Against Women Office's (VAWO) Domestic Violence Victims' Civil Legal Assistance Program. A description of this VAWO program can be found at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/​vawo/​grants/​civil/​descrip.htm.

The purpose of this national evaluation is to: (1) Document the range of local activities and programs supported by the FY1998, FY1999, and FY2000 Violence Against Women Office (VAWO) grants to provide civil legal assistance; (2) document local programs funded by other sources of assistance, the gaps these programs fill, whom they serve, and how VAWO funded programs fit into the larger funding picture in a jurisdiction; (3) examine and document grantee planning and implementation efforts; (4) evaluate the need for the adequacy of special conditions imposed on grantees to preserve victim safety and confidentiality, while simultaneously enhancing the professional services offered by grantees; and (5) determine the effectiveness of these programs in meeting the needs of the women they serve.

Under this solicitation, one evaluation project of up to $800,000 will be funded for a period of up to 36 months.
