SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Supplemental award funds will support the grantee in providing training and technical assistance to domestic violence service providers. A portion of the supplemental award is contributed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Division of Violence Prevention (DVP).

This award will expand the scope of the NRCDV's technical assistance activities to include additional activities concerning the prevention of intimate partner violence (IPV) by: (1) Coordinating engagement with national-level partners, including foundations, for the purpose of enhancing communication related to IPV prevention; 2) engaging in planning to facilitate dialogue that will include the sharing of tools and lessons learned among state domestic violence coalitions engaged in IPV primary prevention efforts; 3) continuing to identify and disseminate information on lessons learned and key findings from state domestic violence coalitions that have implemented IPV primary prevention activities through www.PreventIPVorg, and other means; 4) maintaining a virtual workspace to assist in the sharing of resources among state and territorial domestic violence coalitions that are engaged in IPV primary prevention activities; and 5) facilitating regular, ongoing communication between the IPV Prevention Council, ACF/DFVPS, and CDC/DVP.

In addition to the prevention activities, the grantee will coordinate an accessibility and sustainability peer-to-peer technical assistance collaborative with three to five state domestic violence coalitions, which may involve activities such as: (1) Identifying state coalitions with experience in addressing organizational accessibility challenges (i.e. mental health, substance use, men, and adolescent boys), or sustainability challenges (i.e. fiscal management or board management); (2) coordinating support to domestic violence organizations or coalitions experiencing accessibility or sustainability challenges; and (3) developing peer-informed accessibility and sustainability tools and resources, and a discussion forum, for use by all domestic violence coalitions.
