The U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced it is providing a $3.5 million grant to help plant genetic resources for domestic violence victims.
The grants will be awarded to “the states and localities that have identified and identified their largest vulnerability in relation to domestic violence and will provide funding to assist with research, technical assistance, and assistance in implementing and delivering innovative research, training, and education initiatives that can reduce the prevalence of domestic violence.”
According to the announcement, the funding will also support the development of “evidence-based prevention and intervention services for the most vulnerable individuals and communities.”
The program is called Domestic Violence Prevention and Intervention: Enhancing Domestic Violence Research, Training, and Education.
According to the statement, it will help state and local governments improve the delivery of their domestic violence programs and research so that survivors and their loved ones are not left with the burden of costly or inadequate research.
“Domestic violence is an enormous public health problem,” said Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell.
“By addressing these critical issues, we can help prevent the devastating effects of domestic abuse and violence on women, children, and communities, and provide them the resources and tools to overcome and overcome this challenge.”
Domestic Violence Resources are already available for domestic abuse victims, and there is currently a large number of services available to victims of abuse and stalking.
However, there are no specific resources that provide support to victims and their families.
According to a 2012 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half of all victims of domestic and sexual violence (or 60 percent of all perpetrators) have experienced physical or sexual abuse in their lives.
That means that nearly a quarter of domestic homicides and a quarter in sexual assault are perpetrated by intimate partners.
The Domestic Violence Resource Center’s grant is the second grant to be awarded under the Domestic Violence Initiative, the federal effort to improve domestic violence research, education, and prevention.
A report published by the National Institute of Justice found that, in 2014, domestic violence was the most prevalent preventable violence in the U.N. refugee program, which includes more than a million refugees.
