(CY 2019 - 2021) Violence Against Women (V-STOP)

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 January 1, 2019 and continues through December 31, 2021.  Copies of the V-STOP guidelines, including the necessary grant application forms and instructions, may be downloaded below.

To aid applicants in their grant preparation, DCJS is sponsoring a webinar for continuation grantees.  

The webinar will be held Friday, August 17, 2018, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. This is an optional webinar that is open to all current V-STOP grantees. Instructions for webinar participation will be provided after registration.

There is no registration fee. 

All continuation grantees must submit their applications by 11:59 p.m. on September 18, 2018.  Applications should be emailed to grantsmgmt@dcjs.virginia.gov. No late applications will be accepted.

DCJS staff will review all applications and make programmatic and budgetary recommendations for consideration by a subcommittee of the Criminal Justice Services Board (CJSB). The subcommittee will meet in early December to review the recommendations and will make final recommendations for consideration by the full CJSB in December.
