Her goals for her tenure as Acting Director were to maintain the financial commitments the Office had made to prevent and respond to domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking; to increase support for victims of sexual assault via expanding support services and improving the criminal justice system's response to sexual assault; to expand education about rape and its impact; to continue with the Office on Violence Against Women's initiative to reduce the rate of domestic violence homicide; and to provide appropriate services for low-income communities.
The Office on Violence Against Women administers approximately 24 grant programs.
Twenty programs use discretionary grant funds and four use formula grant funds.
The Office can determine both how discretionary funds will be used and in what context.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is the voice of victims and survivors.
