Family Violence Prevention and Services Discretionary Grants: Culturally Specific Special Issue Resource Centers (CSSIRCs)

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Family Violence Prevention and Services (FVPSA) Program seeks to award three cooperative agreements under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, to establish and maintain three Culturally-Specific Special Interest Resource Centers (CSSIRC) that will enhance intervention and prevention efforts for victims of domestic violence for members of racial and ethnic minority groups: African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander, and Latino/Latina. The CSSIRC 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 and their children. The award will be a cooperative agreement, 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.
