  Annotation: This 2004 annual report presents the accomplishments and activities of the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grant Program (STOP Program) for Fiscal Year 1999 through 2003.
Abstract: STOP Program funds are allocated via a statutory formula to States and territories of the United States and the District of Columbia for programs that address domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. During Fiscal Years 1999 through 2003, subgrantees reported using STOP Program funds for victim services (38.1 percent), law enforcement (23.5 percent), prosecution (24.7 percent), and discretionary programming (8.5 percent). Performance data from subgrantees indicated that 4,939,833 victims were served by STOP Program projects during the study period and a total of 1,294,523 individuals were trained during 77,278 training events. Additionally, 31 percent of subgrantees reported using STOP Program funds to create, support, or expand special units of law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, and other court personnel specifically focusing on violence against women. Another 26 percent of subgrantees used their STOP Program funds to develop or revise policies, procedures, protocols, or administrative orders related to violence against women, 21 percent developed or expanded data collection and communications systems related to violence against women, 26 percent funded stalking services, and 8 percent used their funds to address violence against American Indian victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Data were collected from 55 of the 56 States and territories in Fiscal Year 1999, 54 States and territories in 2000, 51 States and territories in 2001, 54 States and territories in 2002, and 32 States and territories for 2003. Site visits were conducted to 8 to 12 States each year where researchers interviewed grantees and subgrantees regarding the effect of VAWA grant funding on the community.
