(2017 - 2018) Violence Against Women (V-STOP) - One Time Projects for New Applicants

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is the administering agency for the Virginia Services, Training, Officers, Prosecution (V-STOP) Violence Against Women grant program. V-STOP offers grant funds to successful applicants for activities that increase the apprehension, prosecution and adjudication of persons committing violent crimes against women.
The funding period begins October 1, 2017 and continues through June 30, 2018.  No grant extensions will be granted and all grant funds must be expended by June 30, 2018. Copies of the V-STOP guidelines, including the necessary grant application forms and instructions, may be downloaded below.
