FY24 Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Victim Fund (VSDVVF) Grant Program

In 2004, the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation creating the Virginia Domestic Violence Victim Fund. In 2006, the Virginia General Assembly passed additional legislation changing the name of the fund to the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Victim Fund (VSDVVF), effective July 1, 2006. This change more accurately reflects the purpose of the funding and clarifies that resources should be focused on addressing both sexual and domestic violence.

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is the administering agency for this fund. Therefore, pursuant to ยง 9.1-116.1 of the Code of Virginia, DCJS is announcing the availability of funding to assist in protecting and providing necessary services to victims of and/or children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking, and family abuse.

Over the one-year grant period, grant funds will be distributed to local attorneys for the Commonwealth for the purpose of funding the cost of attorneys or to further dedicate existing resources to prosecute felonies and misdemeanors involving sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking, and family abuse.

Additionally, over the one-year grant period, funds will support projects in non-profit programs, local units of government, and state agencies that provide services to victims of and/or children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking, and family abuse.
