Grants to Hawaii nonprofit and faith-based organizations to support women who are victims of gender-based crime. Funding is intended to promote the creation, development, and maintenance of services that benefit female crime victims, or to improve community responses related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. The goal of the program is to promote multidisciplinary approaches to addressing violence against women by supporting projects or initiatives that are sensitive to the needs and safety of victims and hold offenders accountable.

The  Services-Training-Officers-Prosecutors (STOP) Violence Against Women Formula Grants are awarded to states to develop and strengthen the criminal justice system’s response to violence against women and to support and enhance services for victims. 

Applicants must fall within at least one of the 20 authorized purpose areas described here:

The VAWA Statutory Purpose Areas are number 17 (focusing on programs addressing sexual assault against men, women, and youth in correctional and detention settings) and number 19 (focusing on services and responses targeting male and female victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, whose ability to access traditional services and responses is affected by their sexual orientation or gender identity). 

Applicants must identify at least one of the following funding priority areas:

  1. Support and develop core victim services
  2. Develop an effective coordinated community response for domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and/or stalking.

For additional information, see:

In general, the focus for STOP-funded services is on adult female victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Services to children must show an inextricable link and be the direct result of providing services to the adult victims. Services may be provided to adolescents age 11 and older who are: 1) victims of dating violence, or 2) sexually assaulted by a person who is not a family or household member. 

The Department will award extra points in the scoring of proposals to qualified applicants providing culturally-specific services as defined by OVW.  For additional information, see:
