Family Violence Prevention and Services/ Improvements to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Service Accessibility

Family Violence Prevention and Services/ Improvements to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Service Accessibility – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Questioning (LGBTQ) victims of intimate partner, domestic, and/or dating violence do not have consistent access to culturally competent services to prevent and address such violence. Domestic/intimate partner violence is a significant health problem among LGBTQ populations and has serious physical health, mental health, and social consequences for its victims, their families, the LGBTQ communities, and society-at-large. The intent of this Family Violence Prevention and Services Capacity-Building Demonstration grant program is to expand the capacity of both “mainstream” domestic violence organizations and LGBTQ-specific organizations to more effectively identify and address the unique needs of LGBTQ intimate partner violence victims. The successful applicant will be expected to identify and inform LGBTQ-specific prevention and intervention strategies, including screening and on-going assessment that can be replicated in local domestic violence and LGBTQ programs. Current Closing Date for Applications: August 06, 2013.
