Creative Funding for Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Programs
A new publication, Funding the Work: Community Efforts to End Domestic Violence and Child Abuse, provides valuable information for community organizations seeking to end domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. Primarily focused on Federal funding opportunities from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), the document also offers suggestions for seeking funding from State and local governments, private foundations, and corporations.
This paper arose out of the Greenbook Initiative--a collaboration between HHS and DOJ to address the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child maltreatment in six pilot sites. It contains a number of innovative examples of how organizations around the country have drawn on available resources to fund their work.
Funding the Work is published by the American Public Human Services Association, through a subcontract with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges and in collaboration with the Family Violence Prevention Fund. It is available online, along with further information about the Greenbook Initiative, at www.thegreenbook.info. A limited number of print copies are available from:
