Request for Proposals for Trauma-Informed Abusive Partner Intervention Program

Posted in: News, Past Opportunities

Posted on November 3, 2016

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is soliciting proposals to plan and implement an abusive partner intervention program (APIP) that incorporates a trauma-informed approach.  The purpose of the program will be to hold abusive partners accountable.

Work with abusive partners is a critical element in the broader effort to combat intimate partner violence (IPV). APIPs aim to hold abusive partners accountable and reduce recidivism. The funding for this RFP presents a unique opportunity to develop a trauma-informed APIP that adopts a holistic and comprehensive approach to working with abusive partners by changing the justifications, attitudes, and beliefs perpetuating abuse.

Proposed programs should draw upon common elements of quality APIPs (if appropriate for the service population) and integrate best practices for working with individuals who have experienced trauma. It is also critical that programming be culturally and linguistically appropriate, particularly for groups that are under-resourced (e.g., specific racial/ethnic groups, LGBTQ-identified, immigrants). The input of IPV survivors, as well as the safety of survivors and children, will be top priorities of any CJII-funded programming. A high-quality APIP of this nature has the potential to effect real change among abusive partners and, in turn, reduce IPV recidivism in Manhattan.

Proposers may either a) adjust or enhance an existing APIP to integrate trauma-informed approaches or b) create and pilot a new program.

The anticipated total funding for a trauma-informed APIP is up to $75,000 for planning (for a maximum of six months) and up to $1.4 million for implementation (for 2.5 years).
