Grants to USA agencies, IHEs, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and tribal entities for programs that address intentional injuries to girls. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for training, technical assistance, and community services to address and help stop the practice of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM).
This solicitation has two purpose areas.
This program will support projects to build or enhance a community response to address the needs of victims of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM) and to provide targeted technical assistance to inform frontline providers on how to identify and serve victims and persons at-risk of being victimized.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, FGM refers to procedures involving partial or total removal of female genitalia or other injury to female genital organs for any cultural, religious, or nontherapeutic purpose. It is illegal in the United States under federal law to perform this procedure on people under 18 years of age (see 18 U.S.C. § 116), and prohibited by many states as well.
This program addresses the crime of FGM. Under Purpose Area 1, a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider will be selected to educate law enforcement, public health professionals, educators, and other professionals on detecting at-risk girls and to support the project sites through active technical assistance and other methods to facilitate cross-site learning. Under Purpose Area 2, project sites will develop services to deliver to victims of FGM and work to increase education, detection, and local partner engagement to address and help stop the victimization through FGM at the community level.
