The ANTRC will be part of a network of National and Special Issue Resource Centers providing leadership and support to the existing programs serving victims of domestic violence and their children.
ACF will apply a preference for applicants proposing to establish a resource center in the State of Alaska, and will award bonus points to such applications.
