The Family and Youth Services Bureau, Family Violence Prevention and Services Program is seeking assistance and input in identifying a critical partner in the State of Florida to serve as the HHS designated domestic violence coalition.  We invite all interested stakeholders such as domestic violence service providers, community stakeholders, State leaders, and representatives of underserved/unserved populations and linguistically specific populations to attend virtual listening sessions scheduled for September 15th (10:30 a.m.), 17th (6:00 p.m.) and 20th (2:00 p.m.), 2021.   The purpose of these listening sessions are to help inform the decision-making process in accomplishing the Family Violence Prevention Services Act (FVPSA) mandated role of designating a Statewide Domestic Violence Coalition.


Per 45 CFR § 1370.2, a State Domestic Violence Coalition means a Statewide, nongovernmental, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose membership includes a majority of the primary-purpose domestic violence service providers in the State; whose board membership is representative of these primary-purpose domestic violence service providers and which may include representatives of the communities in which the services are being provided in the State; that has as its purpose to provide education, support, and technical assistance to such service providers to enable the providers to establish and maintain supportive services and to provide shelter to victims of domestic violence and their children; and that serves as an information clearinghouse, primary point of contact, and resource center on domestic violence for the State and supports the development of policies, protocols and procedures to enhance domestic violence intervention and prevention in the State/Territory.  Additional details and requirements for what makes an entity eligible can be found at: https://ecfr.io/Title-45/Section-1370.20.
