The Domestic Violence Program (DVP) provides funding for community-based domestic violence programs throughout Colorado. Additionally, DVP strives to collaborate with other governmental agencies and the community to provide expertise in domestic violence and make available the best possible interventions for victims across all systems and communities. The resources below are for funded programs.
All programs that receive funding from DVP are required to collect and report data related to the delivery of services to victims of domestic violence and their children, as well as activities related to the prevention and awareness of domestic violence. DVP-funded programs must collect all information related to all domestic violence services, including program components that are not funded by DVP.
DVP requires a Monthly Data Report as well as a Quarterly Data Report. These reports must be submitted via the Client Assessment, File & Event Management System (the CAFE) by the Data Report Contact identified on the DVP Contact Form. Instructions to submit Data Reports as well as to use the CAFÉ are available in the DVP Data Reporting Requirements Guide.
