ACTION: Notice of the availability of funding to Native American Tribes (including Alaska Native Villages) and Tribal organizations for family violence prevention and services (FVPS). AGENCY: SUMMARY: This announcement governs the proposed award of formula grants under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act to Native American Tribes (including Alaska Native Villages) and Tribal organizations. The purpose of these grants is to assist Tribes in establishing, maintaining, and expanding programs and projects to prevent family violence and to provide immediate shelter and related assistance for victims of family violence and their dependents. This announcement sets forth the application requirements, the application process, and other administrative and fiscal requirements for grants in fiscal year (FY) 2005. Grantees are to be mindful that although the expenditure period for grants is a two-year period, an application is required every year to provide continuity in the provision of services. (See General Grant Requirements For Tribes Or Tribal Organizations B. Expenditure Periods). C.F.D.A. Number: 93.671, Family Violence Prevention and Services. DATES: Applications for FY 2005 Tribes (including Alaska Native Villages) and Tribal Organizations grant awards meeting the criteria specified in this instruction should be received no later than July 1, 2005. ADDRESSES: Applications should be sent to Family and Youth Services Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Administration for Children and Families, Attn: William Riley, 330 PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Annual Tribal Grantee Conference Client Confidentiality FVPSA programs must establish or implement policies and protocols for maintaining the safety and confidentiality of the victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. It is essential that the confidentiality of adult victims and their children receiving FVPSA services be protected. Consequently, when providing statistical data on program activities, individual identifiers of client records will not be used (section 303(a)(2)(E)). Stop Family Violence Postal Stamp The U.S. Postal Service was directed by the ‘‘Stamp Out Domestic Violence Act of 2001,’’ (the Act), Public Law 107– 67, to make available a ‘‘semipostal’’ stamp to provide funding for domestic violence programs. Funds raised in connection with sales of the stamp, less reasonable costs, have been transferred to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during FY 2004 in accordance with the Act for support of services to children and youth affected by domestic violence. It is projected that additional stamp revenues will be received during FY 2005. Subsequent to the receipt of the stamp proceeds, a program announcement will be issued providing guidance and information on the process and requirements for awards to programs providing services to children and youth. The Importance of Coordination of Services The impact of family and intimate violence include physical injury and death of primary or secondary victims, psychological trauma, isolation from family and friends, harm to children witnessing or experiencing violence in homes in which the violence occurs, E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1
