Cooperative agreement with a USA or territories nonprofit or for-profit organization, Tribal organization, agency, or IHE to expand and enhance the capacity of programs addressing domestic and dating violence. Required registrations may take up to four weeks to complete.

The ESCYAP grantee will expand the capacity of domestic violence service providers, community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, and other professionals to provide age-appropriate counseling and supportive services for children and youth exposed to domestic violence and services for non-abusing parents that support their role as caregiver, including services that work with the non-abusing parent and child together.

Specifically, the ESCYAP grantee will provide programmatic and evaluation technical assistance to FVPSA grantees funded under the Specialized Services to Abused Parents and their Children (SSAPC) Demonstration Sites grant, including facilitation of a peer-to-peer mentorship program with past SSAPC grant recipients.

The ESCYAP grantee will maintain and continue to develop content for an online resource center, specifically promoting work for children, youth, and abused parents impacted by domestic violence within the following areas: an interventions database, culturally relevant interventions/programming, staff capacity building, and parent support/engagement strategies.

The ESCYAP grantee is part of a network of national, special issue, culturally specific, and capacity building centers providing leadership, training, technical assistance, resources, and support to programs and systems serving victims of domestic violence and their children.
