  Annotation: This report evaluates the STOP formula grants to combat violence against women.
  Abstract: Since the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors) program began in 1995, the States have made great strides in implementing their own strategies for helping victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. STOP funding has helped communities combat violence in all three areas and has been an incentive for agencies to work together. The permanency of improvements in services for women victims of violence hinges on continued receipt of funding. The report contains recommendations that focus on specific issues that would improve or expand the ability of the STOP program to help women victims of violence. The report is divided into 10 chapters: (1) Introduction and Overview; (2) STOP Subgrant Awards; (3) Impact of STOP Subgrants; (4) Developing a Coordinated Community Response; (5) Reaching and Serving Women from Underserved Communities; (6) Sexual Assault as a Focus of the STOP Program; (7) Stalking as a Focus of the STOP Program; (8) Data Collection and Communication Systems; (9) Administration of the STOP Grants; and (10) Subgrant Activities and Performance.
