The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Family Violence Prevention and Services (FVPSA) Program seeks to award four cooperative agreements under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, to establish and maintain four Culturally-Specific Sexual
Assault Capacity Building Centers (CSSAC) that will enhance intervention and prevention efforts for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and family violence for members of racial and ethnic minority groups including African Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, and Latinos/Latinas.
The CSSAC grantees are part of a network of National, Special Issue, Culturally Specific, and Capacity Building Resource Centers providing leadership, training, technical assistance, resources, and support to programs and systems serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, family service and their children.
The awards will be cooperative agreements, which is an award instrument used when substantial involvement is anticipated between the awarding office and the grantee during performance of the contemplated project.
FYSB will collaborate with the grantee throughout the project period.
