HE WON'T BE BACK
HE WON'T BE BACK Gov. Schwarzenegger Cut 100% of Domestic Violence Funding and What Californians Can Do About It

Please look at WHO is getting the grants, and look at the bar chart below — in 2009, suddenly, it’s Zero.” (OR data not in yet?). . . .

I know some of these groups. Others I don’t.  They’re doing training and web-based webinars, conferences, etc.

They are not STREET-level help, and this is the bulk of the funding, too:

Here’s who got the money in CA in 2008:

ASIAN-AMERICAN HEALTH FORUM California $400,000 1831831360
CENTER FOR COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS California $75,000 005138644
FAMILY VIOLENCE PREVENTION FUND California $1,323,812 6183756870

in 2007:

CENTER FOR COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS California $75,000 005138644
CHILDRENS HOSPITAL LOS ANGELESDIV OF ADOLES M California $75,000 52277936 0
EAST BAY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION California $95,648 084516632
FAMILY VIOLENCE PREVENTION FUND California $1,394,127 6183756870
SOUTH BAY COMMUNITY SVCS INC California $75,000 1134077790

(2006 — no one; 2005):

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.
