The IPV Provider Network: Engaging the Health Care Provider Response to Interpersonal Violence Against Women

February 6, 2015

The Office on Women’s Health (OWH) announces and anticipates awarding one (1) to three (3) cooperative agreement(s) for approximately $2.2 total cost (direct and indirect) in FY 2015.  Domestic and sexual violence will hereafter be referred to as “Interpersonal Violence” or IPV, and the network of healthcare providers and violence programs will be referred to as the IPV Provider Network.

This initiative will continue work focused on integrating interpersonal violence assessment and intervention into basic care, as well as encouraging collaborations between health care providers (including public health programs) and IPV programs. OWH encourages applicants with an established network of 5–10 partners, which represent health care providers (including those in public health programs) and domestic and sexual violence programs, to apply.

Previous work focused on enhancing health care providers’ understanding of IPV issues and connecting providers with IPV programs. This funding opportunity will focus on turning the “connections” into implementation, namely, large-scale collaboration between providers and IPV programs to test models and strategies that:

  • Integrate screening, brief counseling, and referral for interpersonal violence into routine clinical practice
  • Improve standards for documentation and communication across programs
  • Integrate evaluation, continuous quality measurement, and reporting and consider standardization and evidence-based interventions, balanced with local cultural and legal considerations


Due date: May 12, 2015, by 5 p.m. ET.

All applications for this funding opportunity must be submitted electronically through http://grants.gov and must be received by 5 p.m. (ET) on May 12, 2015.
