Capacity Building and COVID-19 Response
At the beginning of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, advocates and programs rose to the challenge of providing services to victims/survivors throughout this health emergency. Many programs responded by creating or increasing virtual and mobile services.
Through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) funding, MNCASA has a project to help advocacy programs who developed these emergency response services to strengthen and transition these services to permanent virtual and mobile services advocacy programs can offer. Additionally this project will help advocates and programs continue to navigate the pandemic, develop partnerships with healthcare providers, and strengthen culturally specific programming. This project will also highlight COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) communities and victims/survivors.
