This program offers funding to a single entity to establish and maintain a Native Hawaiian Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NHRCDV). The NHRCDV will provide technical assistance and training resources for Native Hawaiian-serving organizations to enhance their capacity to respond to domestic violence, including Native Hawaiian (NH) communities and programs in areas that are geographically isolated where community-level involvement is necessary. The Center will also provide comprehensive community education and domestic violence prevention initiatives and coordinate activities with state and federal agencies, offices, and grantees that address the needs of NH that experience domestic violence.

Required activities include:

  • Provide technical assistance to expand the capacity of NH, NH organizations, domestic violence programs, and other responders to provide survivor- and culturally-centered domestic violence prevention and intervention services
  • Create community-level involvement and develop programmatic resources and training tools to assist NH organizations, community-based supports, and non-NH programs
  • Increase emergency/safety responses, access to shelter or safe homes, and other supportive services, such as legal assistance and transportation, for NH victims of domestic violence
  • Enhance public awareness through the development and promotion of new and/or existing resources, including emerging issues and prevention/intervention strategies; model program policies; sheltering policies; screening tools; and promising practices
  • Synthesize research literature and conduct studies to inform development of frameworks that consider the unique needs of NH victims of domestic violence with special emphasis on the populations that are geographically removed from accessible services
  • Develop partnerships and build innovative collaborations between entities such as: domestic violence providers, NH organizations, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender Based Violence (API- GBV), the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center (NIWRC), the Alaska Native Women's Resource Center (AKNWRC) and other DVRN members, school teachers, community members, transportation providers, public health organizations, the Hawaii State Domestic Violence Coalition, and social service agencies
  • Provide coordinated and topic-specific training and technical assistance to the FVPSA Program through onsite visits; presenting at statewide, regional and national meetings and conferences; developing on-line, self-paced learning modules; presenting webinars; developing written materials; and coordinating small group meetings
  • Address emerging issues related to family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence through the provision of training and technical assistance that is comprehensive and national in scope
  • Conduct needs assessments to address emerging trends, gaps, and accessibility barriers for domestic violence victims when accessing health and social services in Hawaii
  • Coordinate with NNEDV in their efforts to assure the capacity of the states and domestic violence coalitions, FVPSA recipients and subrecipients to carry out the FVPSA grant program requirements
  • Plan meetings, events, and site visits in conjunction with FYSB to allow for participation of FYSB staff
  • Ensure that the grant approach, workplans, and deliverables are consistent with a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality

Eligible entities must meet the following criteria:

  • Located in a state in which the population of Native Hawaiians exceeds 10 percent of the total population of the state
  • A Native Hawaiian organization that focuses primarily on issues of domestic violence among Native Hawaiians, or an institution of higher education
  • Demonstrate ability to serve all regions of the State, including underdeveloped areas and areas that are geographically distant from population centers
