What is the difference between a victim advocate and a legal advocate?

A legal advocate provides legal advocacy to victims/survivors.  An example of a legal advocate is a court-based advocate who assists with protection orders.  A victim advocate provides services such as safety planning, victim advocacy and crisis intervention.

Please note that FTEs are reported by job function, not job title.  To report a staff that has more than one job function, first calculate the total FTE of that staff person based on how many grant-funded hours they work each reporting period. Then split up their FTE into the staff categories by estimating the percent of their time performing each job function.
