Grants Available to Help Children and Youth Exposed to Domestic Violence

7/5/2005:   State governments and organizations have until July 25 to apply for $650,000 in grant funds through the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families' (ACYF) Family Violence Prevention Services Program. The grants provide enhanced services and support to children and youth who have been exposed to domestic violence. Studies show that children who have witnessed violence can have greater anxiety, loss of self-esteem, depression, anger, and temperament problems. They may also exhibit fewer skills in understanding how others feel, compared with children from nonviolent households.

ACYF is awarding four or five grants totaling about $130,000 each. Eligible applicants include state governments, nonprofits having 501(c)(3) status, and faith-based and community organizations. More information...
