New Funding Announcement and Informational Webinar: Project Catalyst Phase III
Project Catalyst III: State/Territory-wide Transformation on Health, IPV and Human Trafficking
Futures Without Violence (FUTURES) is soliciting applications for Phase III of Project Catalyst focused on fostering leadership and collaboration at the state or territory level to improve the health and safety outcomes for survivors of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Human Trafficking (HT) as well as promote prevention efforts. This project is supported through a collaboration of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services partners, including the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Family and Youth Services Bureau, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care, and the HRSA Office of Women’s Health. Technical assistance and training will be provided by FUTURES. Since 1996, FUTURES has been ACF’s funded National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence (HRC) and in that role promotes model health responses to IPV as well as patient and provider education tools.
We are recruiting state/territory leadership teams (consisting of one state’s/territory’s: Primary Care Association (PCA), Department of Health (DH) and Domestic Violence Coalition (DVC)) to work closely with FUTURES and with each other to promote state/territory level policy and systems changes that support an integrated and improved response to IPV/HT in community health centers and to other needed services in domestic violence programs.
A one hour webinar for interested applicants to learn more about the project and ask any questions about the funding announcement will be held:
Wednesday, Oct 23 (10-11am Pacific/11-12pm Mountain/12-1pm Central/1-2pm Eastern).
