The Missouri Foundation for Health has identified women's health as a priority area for grants that address the health behavior, prevention and treatment needs of more than half of the state population. The overall goal is to support and expand existing programs that work to provide intervention and prevention services for women who have experienced violence. Projects funded under this priority will increase knowledge and awareness of violence against women, work toward prevention of sexual and domestic violence against women, and increase access to services for victims of sexual and domestic violence. Applications accepted for review will address how the organization will provide direct services for victims of violence and/or provide programs that focus on prevention and education. Applicants must address at least one of these two areas, but are not required to address both.

Because the University of Missouri System is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm, Friday, February 1, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to a three-page summary of the proposed project, including 1) prior experience in addressing violence against women, 2) evidence-based models to be adapted for the project (if applicable), 3) community need(s) to be addressed, 4) community partners, and 5) plans for internal evaluation.
