The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is the administering agency for the Virginia Services, Training, Officers, Prosecution (V-STOP) Violence Against Women grant program. V-STOP offers grant funds to successful applicants for activities that increase the apprehension, prosecution and adjudication of persons committing violent crimes against women.

The funding period begins January 1, 2016 and continues through December 31, 2018.  Copies of the V-STOP guidelines, including the necessary grant application forms and instructions, may be downloaded below.

To aid applicants in their grant preparation, DCJS is sponsoring a grant application training for new law enforcement applicants.
