OVW has published the new final rule about the STOP (Services*Training*Officers*Prosecutors) Formula Grant Program. The new rule updates regulations and general provisions governing OVW grant programs, including definitions and requirements for nondisclosure of confidential information about victims as outlined in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). One part of the rule applies to all OVW grantees, and one part specifically governs grantees who receive funding through OVW’s STOP Formula Grant Program.
