SUMMARY:

This notice announces the award of expansion supplement grants to five grantees under the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB)/Family Violence Prevention and Services Program. Expansion supplement awards are made to four technical assistance (TA) providers to support their capacity to enhance victim services by providing more extensive TA to local domestic violence programs and State domestic violence coalitions under the Open Doors to Safety: Capacity-Building Grant (Capacity-Building) project. The supplemental funds, coupled with the TA providers' expertise, will enable Open Doors Safety Capacity-Building project grantees to receive more training and site-specific consultation, so that they may build program capacity. The awards will also support State-level collaboration between domestic violence organizations and child welfare agencies. These combined efforts will strengthen the ability of domestic violence programs and their partners to better serve survivors who have diverse backgrounds, experiences, and abilities.Start Printed Page 51159
