Family Violence Prevention and Services Act

FVPSA Reversions

Grant funds are issued on a reimbursement basis to grantees. 
In an effort to deter reversions of the FPVSA issued grant funds, NC CFWYI-FVPSA has implemented the following guideline:

When a grantee has monetary reversions of more than $2,000, or 10% of the total grant award (whichever is the higher amount) the grantee will be assessed to evaluate the grantee’s ability to expend any future FVPSA issued grant funds.  

Such assessment may result in a reduction of any future FVPSA grant funds or possible non-issuance of future FVPSA grant funds if the reversion of funds occurs more than one grant cycle.

An example has been provided for guidance below.

FVPSA grantee receives a grant award in the amount of $24,000 during the grant cycle (October 1st thru September 30th) 
If said grantee reverts more than $2,000 or $2,400 of the $24,000 issued during the grant cycle, an assessment will be conducted to reduce funds.
If said grantee reverts more than $2,000 or 10% of the total grant award (whichever is the higher amount) more than one grant cycle, it is possible that the grantee will no longer receive FVPSA funds.

FVPSA “prevention” definition guidance

The FVPSA regulations define primary prevention as follows:
Subpart A § 1370.1

Primary prevention means strategies, policies, and programs to stop both first-time perpetration and first-time victimization. Primary prevention is stopping domestic and dating violence before they occur. Primary prevention includes, but is not limited to School-based violence prevention curricula, programs aimed at mitigating the effects on children of witnessing domestic or dating violence, community campaigns designed to alter norms and values conducive to domestic or dating violence, worksite prevention programs, and training and education in parenting skills and self-esteem enhancement.

The FVPSA regulations define secondary prevention as follows:
Secondary prevention is identifying risk factors or problems that may lead to future family, domestic, or dating violence, and taking the necessary actions to eliminate the risk factors and the potential problem, and may include, but are not limited to, healing services for children and youth who have been exposed to domestic or dating violence, home visiting programs for high-risk families, and screening programs in healthcare settings.
