Handbook of Federal Resources on Domestic Violence.
National Clearinghouse on Domestic Violence, Rockville, MD.
This handbook contains descriptions of information about specific federal programs that provide services for victims of domestic violence, and of federal agencies that have the potential to develop related projects and programs. Based primarily on information obtained through the Interdepartmental Committee on Domestic Violence review and analysis of federal programs, this comprehensive directory lists 87 program activities and services, including direct service grants, research and demonstration efforts, training and technical assistance, and information and referral services. Each program is detailed in terms of: (1) a description; (2) uses and use restrictions; (3) types of assistance; (4) formula and matching grants; (5) eligibility requirements; (6) applications and award procedures; (7) appropriations; (8) program accomplishments; and (9) information contacts. The handbook is organized alphabetically by government agency; within each agency heading, programs are arranged numerically by Office of Management and Budget number, and programs without numbers appear alphabetically at the end of the listing. A detailed table of contents and subject index are provided for those seeking funds for domestic violence projects. (Author/NRB)
