New OVW Funding Opportunity: Addressing the Deadly Nexus of Firearms and Domestic Violence


To support communities in responding to domestic violence with firearms, the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is offering competitive awards to support up to six sites to participate in its Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Firearms Technical Assistance Project (FTAP). Abusers often use or threaten to use firearms against victims of domestic violence, and research demonstrates that when an abuser has access to a firearm, domestic violence is far more likely to be deadly. In fact, an abuser’s access to firearms is the single greatest risk factor for intimate partner homicide. This funding will support selected communities in implementing domestic violence firearms laws and establishing a localized response that correlates to their distinct needs and incorporates comprehensive, culturally specific approaches to enhance victim and survivor safety by addressing the nexus of firearms and domestic violence.
