state administrators (from 50 states, the District of Columbia and five

Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands)) and their subgrantees. The 
STOP Violence Against Women Formula Grants Program was authorized 
through the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) and reauthorized 
and amended by the Violence Against Women Acts of 2000, 2005 and 2013.

assault evidence including developing protocols and policies for 
notifying and involving victims; improving responses to male and female 
victims whose ability to access traditional services and responses is 
affected by their sexual orientation or gender identity; and supporting 
prevention or educational programming (limited to five percent of the 
award amount). The reauthorization also ensured that domestic violence, 
dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking are included in all the 
statutory purpose areas and added legal assistance in purpose area for 
``victim assistance''.

prosecutors' offices, courts, victim services agencies, etc.
