  Annotation: This report evaluates the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors) program to help communities combat violence against women.
  Abstract: The report describes the distribution of STOP funds by the states and activities and goals of the STOP subgrantee projects. It analyzes evidence of increased collaboration and system change through STOP projects and outreach to victims who previously had limited access to services. In addition, the report includes data on STOP accomplishments and impact; discussion of efforts to address the gaps and barriers to improved responses to violence against women, including those mandated by the legislation; analysis of the Federal and State administration and support of the STOP grants; and a summary of the plans and progress on national evaluations of STOP. STOP projects that have placed a major emphasis on collaboration for the purpose of bringing about system change have been successful. Both victims and service professionals reported substantial benefits of STOP projects. Notes, figures, tables, appendix
