L.) 98–457, 42 U.S.C. 10401 et seq.) is entitled the ‘‘Family Violence Prevention and Services Act’’ (FVPSA). FVPSA was first implemented in Fiscal Year (FY) 1986. The statute was subsequently amended by Public Law 100–294, the ‘‘Child Abuse Prevention, Adoptions, and Family Services Act of 1988;’’ further amended in 1992 by Public Law 102–295; and then amended in 1994 by Public Law 103–322, the ‘‘Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.’’ FVPSA was amended again in 1996 by Public Law 104–235, the ‘‘Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) of 1996;’’ in 2000 by Public Law 106–386, the ‘‘Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act,’’ and amended further by Public Law 108–36, the ‘‘Keeping Children and Families Safe Act of 2003.’’ FVPSA was most recently amended by Public Law 109–162, the ‘‘Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005.’’ Background Program Office: Administration on Children, Youth, and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB). Program Announcement Number: HHS–2006–ACF–ACYF–FVPS–0122. Announcement Title: Family Violence Prevention and Services/Grants to State Domestic Violence Coalitions. CFDA Number: 93.591. Dates: Due Date for Applications: April 3, 2006. Executive Summary: This announcement governs the proposed award of formula grants under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) to private, non- VerDate Aug<31>2005 profit State Domestic Violence Coalitions (Coalitions). The purpose of these grants is to assist in the conduct of activities to promote domestic violence intervention and prevention and to increase public awareness of domestic violence issues. This notice for family violence prevention and services grants to Coalitions serves two purposes. The first is to confirm a Federal commitment to reducing family and intimate partner violence; and the second purpose is to urge States, localities, cities, and the private sector to become involved in State and local planning towards an integrated service delivery approach. Section 311 of FVPSA authorizes the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary to award grants to statewide, private, non-profit Coalitions to conduct activities to promote domestic violence intervention and prevention and to increase public awareness of domestic violence issues. Annual State Domestic Violence Coalition Grantee Conference Coalitions should plan to send one or more representatives to the annual grantee conference. A subsequent Program Instruction and/or Information Memorandum will advise Coalition administrators of the date, time, and location of their grantee conference. PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10689 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 (see 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– 62, 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 HHS in accordance with the Act for support of services to children and youth affected by domestic violence. As a result of the transfer of $1.3 million in 2005, a grant offering was made for the development of ‘‘Demonstration Programs for The Enhanced Services to Children and Youth Who Have Been Exposed to Domestic Violence.’’ Sixty-five applications were received and reviewed. Nine grant applications of approximately $130,000 each have been approved and funded. Detailed information on the successful applicants and their programs will be shared with State FVPSA Administrators and the Coalitions. Documenting Our Work (DOW) Initiative The need to accurately communicate reliable and appropriate data that captures the impact of domestic violence prevention work and to provide shelters, States, and Coalitions with tools for self-assessment continues as the DOW Initiative. In conjunction with representatives for State FVPSA programs, Coalitions, and experts on both data collection and domestic violence prevention issues, the effort to develop informative, succinct, and nonburdensome reporting formats will continue with the hope of concluding in this fiscal year. Any changes in informational needs and reporting formats will be accompanied by specifically designated workshops or adjuncts to regularly occurring meetings. II. Funds Available HHS will make 10 percent of the amount appropriated under section E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1
