Bracing for Crushing Funding Cuts
2/1/2017: Not even a year after facing a significant loss due to a change in federal HUD funding, Coburn Place Safe Haven faces another uphill battle to ensuring local survivors of intimate partner violence have safety and housing options and support services.
On January 19th, The Hill reported that the new Trump Administration budget would propose drastic spending cuts by calling to eliminate a multitude of federal initiatives including the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW). OVW implements the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and oversees grant programs.
To Coburn Place, the elimination of VAWA funds would translate to a loss of about $300,000 annually – about a third of its entire staff funding could be lost. VAWA grants support, from small percentages to large portions, 18 of Coburn Place’s 26 employees. Its program would be left gutted and struggling to provide the safety, self-sufficiency, well-being, and housing services it has provided for the last 20 years. “Our team is our program.
