Published Date
July, 2017

The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau Final Rule, which became effective on January 3, 2017, incorporates statutory requirements from the 2010 FVPSA reauthorization as well as existing program policies and guidance into regulation, which are FVPSA’s standards of practice. More specifically, the new regulations clarify and reinforce that, as a condition of receiving federal funds, all FVPSA grantees and subgrantees must adhere to statutory and regulatory requirements that are vital to the FVPSA mission of supporting welcoming, inclusive, and accessible services for all survivors of domestic and dating violence and their families.

  • Key definitions
