OVW Celebrates Black History Month

In this news article, the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is elated to honor Black History Month with grantees and the Department of Justice. For almost 30 years, OVW awarded more than $9.5 billion in grants and cooperative agreements to communities across the United States. This Black History Month, we honor the work of grantees as well as OVW leaders who continue to lift up the voices of Black individuals and lead innovative programs and initiatives to respond to and prevent gender-based violence.
