The DVP operates with the guidance of two groups.  DVP's Advisory Committee provides guidance to the DVP on the overall direction of the program's activities and responsibilities.  The DVP Selection Committee is responsible for reviewing all applications for funding and making grant award recommendations to CDHS.  These two groups are represented by agencies such as the Colorado Attorney General's Office, CDHS Child Support Enforcement, Colorado Department of Public Safety, CDHS Aging and Adult Services, local domestic violence programs, the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and many others.
