US Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women

Established in 1995 by the federal government, the Office on Violence Against Women is responsible for handing the Department of Justice's legal and policy issues regarding violence against women in the United States, along with working closely with other divisions within the Department and administering a variety of grant programs. One of the main components of the site is devoted to providing information about the Office's grant programs, for which state and local agencies are eligible to apply. There is also plenty of material for the general public and community groups, including different publications documenting the very real problem of domestic abuse, sexual assault, and stalking. For grant applicants to get a better sense of what other communities are doing around the country, a state-by-state interactive map allows users to find out about programs designed to combat violence against women, such as outreach programs on college and university campuses. The section of the site that is perhaps most useful overall is dedicated to the national domestic violence hotline and sexual assault hotlines for various states.
