Now look at 93.591. It’s going straight to the COALITIONS, one/state. Even though the title includes the word “grants to battered women’s shelters,” I don’t think the money ever gets to these shelters through these grants.
California Alliance Against Domestic Violence (WHO?)
The Feds are instead sending money DIRECTLY to the State Coalitions Against Domestic Violence, under the new “grant” program # 93.591, which contains the words “Grants to Battered Women’s Shelters” IN it, but the money is not going to probably go to shelters. It is going to web-based trainings such as the ones we were looking at by the Battered Women’s Justice Centers. It is getting centralized and streamlined.
this category “93.591” only came into being in 2008.
93l.592 is also for shelters, and we should ask EVERY recipient what they did with their money.
FVPF, a group that (I heard) is majorly responsible for the VAWA passing to start with, has had a real injection of federal funding (including under 93.592, which is SHELTERS, but it’s a high-class conference and training initiative.
