Grants to Tennessee local government agencies for the development of family justice centers in local communities throughout the State. An Intent to Apply must be submitted prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support the establishment of new centers in communities where none currently exist, or additional branch offices in other counties.
The FY2020 Family Justice Center Project awards funding to units of local government interested in planning, developing and establishing a Family Justice Center in their community. A Family Justice Center is a co-location of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who work together, under one roof, to provide coordinated services to victims of family violence which must at a minimum address victims of domestic violence, but can also include sexual assault, child abuse, human trafficking and elder abuse. The core concept is to provide one place where families can go to receive services to promote their safety and well-being. It is often called a “one-stop shop” for domestic violence and other victims of crime seeking assistance.
Funding may also be used for:
- Establishing a position to be funded for the purpose of ensuring the activities of the grant are implemented as indicated
- Promoting and educating the community on the concept and benefits of establishing a Family Justice Center
- Coordinating the activities involved to assess the community readiness for creating a Family Justice Center
- Assist with creating a strategic plan and the implementation process for that plan
- Building partnerships between public and private entities to aide in supporting the FJC
JAG funds may be used by the subrecipient for personnel costs, training and technical assistance, equipment, operational costs, and information systems. For specific allowable use of funds, see the Solicitation Packet in Supporting Documents.
