Review of best practices for ICJI program areas and funding streams: Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Grant, Federal Family Violence Grant, and Social Services Block Grant

Service: Program evaluation

Research Area: Criminal Justice

This report describes best practices for subgrants awarded under three funding streams administered by ICJI: 1) Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment (DVPT); 2) Federal Family Violence (FFV); and 3) Social Services Block Grant (SSBG). For this assessment, PPI consulted relevant materials from ICJI, including subgrantee information for the previous two funding cycles, subgrantee solicitation documents, and subgrantee applications.

The overall goal of the DVPT program is to prevent/remedy abuse, neglect, or exploitation of victims of domestic violence in Indiana. The FFV grant is a federal funding stream authorized by the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act. The SSBG federal funds enable states to provide locally relevant social services best suited to meet the various needs of their respective residents. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), which is a part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), administers the SSBG program. Within broad federal guidelines, each state is responsible for designing and implementing its own program.
