This is to certify American Samoa Alliance against Domestic & Sexual Violence, also known as “The Alliance” is the dual coalition in American Samoa and has received Family Violence Prevention Services (FVPSA) Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) supplemental funding in 2020. The CARES Act appropriated $45 million for states, Tribes and state domestic violence coalitions to use the funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. Although there was flexibility in the usage of the funds, the focus was to prevent, prepare and respond. This project was developed to promote discussions to influence our community to provide support and guidance for services and shelter options to assist victims of domestic violence.
