STOP Violence Against Women Act

The S.T.O.P. (Services * Training * Officers * Prosecutors) VAWA program supports communities in their efforts to develop and strengthen effective criminal justice strategies to address violent crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence, and the development and enhancement of victim services in cases involving these crimes.

The 2013 Reauthorization of VAWA specifies that states must allocate at least 25 percent of the S.T.O.P. funds to law enforcement, 25 percent to prosecution, 5 percent to courts, 30 percent to nonprofit, non-governmental victim services (10% of which must be distributed to culturally specific community-based organizations). The remaining 15 percent may be allocated at the state’s discretion within the parameters of the Act.

The Idaho STOP Implementation Plan: FFY 2022-2025 will guide the use of the STOP VAWA awards received by the State of Idaho for a four-year period.
