For the fiscal years 1995 through 2000, more than $440 million was spent funding nearly 9,000 subgrants reported on Subgrant Award and Performance Reports (SAPRs). These subgrants funded 3,444 separate projects. Although the median award was modest, at just over $30,000, many projects received multiple grants and multiyear funding. Sixty percent received funding for more than one year, and a third for more than two years. This sustained support has helped promote stability and continuity in all kinds of local efforts to build community responses to violence against women.
