Children and Youth Exposed to Violence Program
The goals and objectives of the CEV Program are to increase the resources, services, and advocacy available to children, youth, and their nonabusing parent or caretaker, when a child has been exposed to domestic/sexual violence.
The consolidated grant program to address children and Youth Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Assault and Engage Men and Boys as Allies (Consolidated Youth or CY Program) has received appropriations in FYs 2013 through 2016. This program, which consolidated four programs previously authorized under earlier iterations of VAWA, including the CEV Program, funds projects that support child, youth, and young adult victims through direct services, training, coordination and collaboration, effective intervention, treatment, response, and prevention strategies. The last grants made under the CEV Program were awarded in FY2011.
