September 2006-October 2007: A Project Funded by the Office on Violence Against Women United States Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs
Rural Domestic Violence and Child Victimization Grant Program Special Initiative: Faith-Based and Community Organization Pilot Program
Grant Number 2006-WR-AX-K001 Award Amount – $2,975,035

The Faith and Community Technical Support (FACTS) project sought to provide small community and faith-based organizations with funds to assist rural victims of domestic violence. FACTS essentially comprised a sixteen-month project funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) through its Rural Pilot Program. FACTS acted as an intermediary between OVW and small community and faith-based programs in order to locate potential grantees (June 2006), oversee a national grant competition (July 2006), disseminate grant awards (September 2006) and provide technical assistance to sub-awardees in rural communities throughout the United States (September 2006-October 2007). Organizationally, FACTS involved collaboration between staff at the Office of Victim Services (OVS), Helena, Montana, and the principal project staff at Baylor University, Waco, Texas.
