The Domestic Violence Prevention (DVP) Program, formerly known as the Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative (DVPI), is a congressionally mandated, nationally coordinated grant and federal award program for tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian organizations (UIO), and federal facilities, providing violence prevention and treatment services. The DVP promotes the development of evidence-based and practice-based models that represent culturally appropriate prevention and treatment approaches to domestic and sexual violence from a community-driven context. The DVP expands outreach and increases awareness by funding projects that provide victim advocacy, intervention, case coordination, policy development, community response teams, sexual assault examiner programs, and community and school education programs.
