Our goal is to enhance the ability for states and territories to administer STOP-logoFormula Grant Programs

The MISSION of the Association of VAWA Administrators (AVA) is to encourage and facilitate mutual support, awareness and cooperation among states and territories administering Violence Against Women Act formula grants and to provide a centralized voice for the advancement of improvements to enhance the effectiveness of VAWA administration.

Join Now By JOINING AVA, together we work to effectively foster services to Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Dating Violence Victims.  Help us to improve partnerships between each State & Territory with OVW and each other.
