  Annotation: This biennial report presents findings regarding the effectiveness of activities carried out from Fiscal Year 2003 through Fiscal Year 2004 with grant funds from the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA).
  Abstract: Recipients of VAWA funding have consistently underscored the importance of the funding to the initiation and maintenance of justice system and community services responses to domestic violence across the country. Results indicated that between January and June 2004, 100,000 victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking received services from projects funded by the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) discretionary grant programs. Professional training funded by OVW was completed by over 205,000 law enforcement officers, victim advocates, attorneys, court personnel, and prosecutors from July 2003 through June 2004. Additionally, 92,379 victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking received legal assistance provided by OVW funds. Specific examples are offered of how VAWA grant funding has been utilized by agencies across the country to combat domestic violence. Information about the effectiveness of specific program grantees is presented in narrative form, including information on programs drawing on grant funds from the Legal Assistance for Victims Grant Program, the STOP Violence Against Indian Women Grants Program, the Grants to Reduce Violent Crimes Against Women on Campus program, the Grants to State Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Coalitions program, the Grants to Tribal Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions program, the Training Grants to Stop Abuse and Sexual Assault Against Older Individuals or Individuals with Disabilities, the Education and Technical Assistance Grants to End Violence Against Women with Disabilities program, and the Safe Havens: Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program. Data were collected through the use of standardized progress reporting tools that include critical new information on program activities, staff, victim services, and criminal justice activities. State profile data were also collected and analyzed. Table, footnotes
