Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Montana local government agencies, tribal governments, and nonprofit organizations to implement programs that reduce domestic violence offender recidivism. Funding is intended for programs including those that monitor and enforce sentence compliance or provide counseling and other services to convicted offenders. Applicants that demonstrate a collaborative approach in program development and execution will be given priority for funding.

The purpose of funding for Misdemeanor Probation is to provide monitoring and enforcement of sentence compliance for offenders who have been convicted of first or second offense Partner or Family Member Assault (PFMA) under MCA 45-5-206 or of a violation of an order of protection under MCA 45-5-626.

These methods include but are not limited to: probation personnel, electronic or GPS monitoring, and case management systems that track recidivism and revocation. Recidivism and risk of serious injury or death to victims can be reduced when offenders are held accountable by the criminal justice system and are required to comply with court ordered sanctions such as payment of fines and restitution, batterer counseling/treatment, Orders of Protection, and drug and alcohol screening.

Communities should demonstrate a collaborative approach in program development between courts, law enforcement, prosecution, and victim assistance programs. Involvement by participating agencies should be documented and include specific contributions to be made.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$95,000

Term of Contract:

The 9-month project period begins October 1, 2019 and concludes June 30, 2020. Funds may not be expended or obligated prior to October 1, 2019.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants include units of local government, tribal governments, and private nonprofit agencies. Private nonprofit agencies are highly encouraged to submit a Collaboration Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a local government law enforcement agency. If applying to implement offender intervention programming or a domestic violence court, only local, tribal or state courts are eligible applicants.

NEW: As a result of SB 67, the Domestic Violence Intervention Program funds may be granted to a court to implement an offender intervention program that meets the standards adopted by the Montana Board of Crime Control.

Communities are discouraged from activities that may compromise victim safety such as:
- Mediation or counseling for couples as a systematic response to domestic violence;
- Requiring victims to report domestic violence crimes to law enforcement or forcing victims to participate in criminal proceedings;
- Placement of batterers in anger management programs; and
- Procedures that would force victims of domestic violence to testify against their abusers or impose other sanctions on them. Rather, procedures that provide victims the opportunity to make an informed choice about whether to testify are encouraged.
