Notes

  • In FY17, the budget moved funding for domestic violence prevention and treatment (approx. $26 million) from the Dept. of Children and Families to the Dept. of Public Health, and consolidated it with domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and treatment funding.
  • Use caution comparing funding for this line item FY09-FY10. In FY10, funding for information technology was taken out of this line item and shifted to a centralized information technology account. The exact amount of this accounting change is not available.

This line item funds a variety of programs that aim to prevent domestic and sexual violence, provide support to victims, and promote positive relationship models.

Funding for domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and treatment goes to four main program areas described below, and also supports capacity-building activities through a state coalition addressing sexual and domestic violence.

Rape Crisis Centers

A little more than half the total appropriation from this line item goes to 17 rape crisis centers around the state. These programs provide confidential services to victims who are 12 years and older. Services include phone hotlines, counseling, and accompaniment of victims to medical providers and courts. These programs also provide extensive outreach and prevention education. (Rape crisis centers also receive state funding through the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program line item for medical accompaniment.)

Certified Batterer Intervention Programs

The Department of Public Health (DPH) is responsible for certifying batterer intervention programs and it also pays for services provided to low-income and indigent people who participate in these programs. Batterers are typically referred to these programs—which provide intervention, not long-term treatment, services—by the courts, and those who are able to pay for them must do so.

Refugee and Immigrant Safety and Empowerment (RISE) Programs

The Refugee and Immigrant Safety and Empowerment (RISE) program funds organizations that provide culturally and linguistically appropriate domestic and sexual violence services to immigrant populations, as well as to victims of sexual trafficking. Funding provided through this program also supports legal assistance provided to immigrants in family courts through two legal services organizations.

GLBT Domestic/Sexual Violence Services

Funding from this line item also supports two programs that provide a range of services, including intervention, crisis management, and educational activities in the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender communities, which are often not served well by programs designed for the heterosexual community.
