Contracts for services to Connecticut community-based agencies and private and public organizations for programs to address domestic violence in Asian communities. Funding is intended to support a wide range of social services, including case management, support groups, counseling, community engagement, training, and outreach. To be eligible, applicants must be an agency whose primary and target population is persons who are defined as Asian.

The Department of Social Services (DSS) is seeking proposals from Asian culture-based organizations and agencies qualified to address the shortage of Domestic Violence services for persons of Asian descent, as well as the barriers that immigrant Asian women and men face when they are experiencing Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).

The Asian-Based Domestic Violence Service Program (ABDV) will provide safety awareness and supportive program services in CT. Services shall be designed to increase clients' stability, skill levels, and self-determination. The successful Respondent will work hand-in-hand with the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) in order to provide the highest level of quality services to the Asian communities within CT. 

Requirements of the Resultant Contractor:

  1. Outreach and Community Engagement
  2. Training
  3. Linguistic and Culturally Appropriate Services
  4. Referrals, Intake, and Case Maintenance
