Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund (VSDVVF)

Grant Program Information:Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund
Purpose of Funds:In 2004, the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation creating the Virginia Domestic Violence Victim Fund (VDVVF). In 2006, the Virginia General Assembly passed additional legislation changing the name of the fund from the Virginia Domestic Violence Victim Fund to the Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund (VSDVVF). This change was made so that the name of the fund would more accurately reflect its purpose and clarify that resources should be focused on addressing both domestic and sexual violence.

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) was designated as the administering agency for this fund. State special funds support the Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund, and the amount available for awards is dependent on deposits into the Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund.

The purpose of the VSDVVF is to provide funding to assist in protecting and providing necessary services to victims of and children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking, and family abuse.
Eligibility Requirements:Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund grants are available to state agencies, local units of government, and non-profit programs that provide services to victims of and/or children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking and family abuse. Eligible applicants include law enforcement agencies, victims services programs, and programs that provide civil legal assistance. Public college and university campus programs are eligible to apply, as are private, non-profit hospitals.
Reporting:The Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Victim Fund programs use the Sexual Domestic Violence Victims Fund System (VSDVVF) to generate quarterly program performance reports. More information about VSDVVF is available here.
