Description

Passage of the bill, as amended, that would reauthorize programs enacted under the Violence Against Women Act through fiscal 2026. It would also expand a number of these programs and other programs and policies aimed at addressing and assisting victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, stalking and sex trafficking. Annually through fiscal 2026, it would authorize or reauthorize programs enacted under VAWA, including $222 million for Justice Department STOP grants to support state and local law enforcement and victim services in response to violent crimes against women; $110 million for Health and Human Services Department rape prevention and education grants; $75 million for legal services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or sexual assault; $60 million for states to support sexual assault services; $50 million to address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking in rural communities; $45 million for Justice Department SMART violence prevention grants focused on teen dating, children exposed to violence at home and men as role models; $40 million to support culturally specific victim services; and funding for programs related to law enforcement response to cybercrimes against individuals, violent crimes on college campuses, violence against deaf individuals and individuals with disabilities, and abuse of invididuals age 50 or older. It would expand prohibitions on firearm ownership by individuals convicted in relation to domestic violence to include individuals convicted of stalking offenses or crimes against dating partners, as well as individuals subject to temporary protective orders. It would make it a crime for a law enforcement officer to engage in a sexual act with an individual under custody and authorize supplemental grants to states that have a similar law in effect. It would require the Bureau of Prisons to establish an office to determine the placement of transgender or intersex prisoners and prisoners who have children; provide health care access and hygenic products to all prisoners; provide parenting classes for prisoners who are primary caretaker parents; and establish a pilot program to allow women and their children born in prison to reside together during the mother's prison term. Among other provisions, the bill would prohibit the denial of unemployment compensation benefits to an individual who left a job due to domestic violence, sexual assault or harassment. It would expand certain housing protections for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking and authorize $55 million annually through fiscal 2026 for rental assistance vouchers and transitional housing services for such individuals. It would expand the jurisdiction of tribal authorities over crimes by non-Indians in tribal jurisdiction and authorize $7 million annually through fiscal 2026 to assist tribal governments with law enforcement activities.
