ver the past two years, state legislators across the country have launched an unprecedented series of initiatives aimed at lowering labor standards, weakening unions, and eroding workplace protections for both union and non-union workers.
This policy agenda undercuts the ability of low- and middle-wage workers, both union and non-union, to earn a decent wage.
The STOP Program was initially authorized under the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) and reauthorized and amended by the Violence Against Women Act of 2000 (VAWA 2000) and by the Violence Against Women Act of 2005 (VAWA 2005). STOP formula grants and subgrants are intended for use by states; state, local, and tribal courts; Indian tribal governments; unitsof local government; and nonprofit, nongovernmental victim services programs.
The STOP Program is administered by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), U. Grants and subgrants supported through this program must meet one or moreof the following statutory program purpose areas: The emphasis of the STOP Program continues to be on the implementation of comprehensive strategies addressing violence against women that are sensitive to the needs and safety of victims and hold offenders accountable for their crimes. STOP funds may now be used to pay for forensic medical exams performed by trained examiners for victims of sexual assault, except that such funds may not be used to pay for forensic medical exams if victims of sexual assault are required to seek reimbursement for such exams from their insurance carriers.
States and territories should seek to carry out these strategies by forging lasting partnerships between the criminaljustice system and victim advocacy organizations and by encouraging communities to look beyond traditional resources and to look to new partners, such as faith-based and community organizations, to respond more vigorously to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking crimes. Awards to states made under this grant program may support up to 75 percent of the total cost of each project.
All states, territories, and the District of Columbia are eligible to apply for a STOP formula grant award. The state is responsible for ensuring compliance with the 25 percent nonfederal match requirement.
