Grants and Other Financial Assistance Programs: FY2016

Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Intervention Program (TDVPIP)
Fund Code: 641

Purpose: The purpose of this grant is to:
  • To provide a 3 year program in public schools in grades 5 to 12 that promotes healthy relationships and addresses teen dating violence in 10 schools, one of which must be a school located in a municipality with a population of 25,000 or less.
Priorities: Priority will be given to proposals that:
  • develop educational programs and strategies to prevent teens from becoming involved with dating-related violence and offer safe intervention strategies and skills;

  • design referral systems for students to mental health, legal, or other support services;

  • use the Department of Education's Guidelines to School Districts on Addressing Teen Dating Violence to develop school- or district-wide policies and procedures for addressing incidents of teen dating violence and restraining orders involving students;

  • implement school-based victim support groups under the supervision of a battered women's service provider or rape crisis center;

  • support the institutionalization of the Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Intervention program by integrating it into the district's safe and supportive schools programs and initiatives;

  • create and sustain collaborative relationships between schools, local battered women's programs and/or rape crisis programs, and DPH-certified batterer intervention programs that provide teen dating violence preventive education, support, and intervention services with the goal of establishing school-based victim support groups and intervention groups for boys;

  • establish and enhance collaborations between schools and community based organization programs and services that provide teen dating violence prevention education, support, and intervention services; and

  • strengthen and maintain referral systems for students to mental health, legal, or other support services;

Eligibility: Public schools with grades 5 to 12 are eligible to apply. It is required that at least one grantee be a school located in a municipality with a population of 25,000 or less.
Funding: The maximum award for a single program within a district is no more than $10,000.
Fund Use: These funds may be used to cover the cost of staff training, hiring of local experts, stipends for team members and group facilitators, and program supplies. If the school district's Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Intervention Program (TDVPIP) has an MOU for services with either DOE-funded batterer intervention or victim service programs, these funds cannot be used for that activity.
