"Mary Byron Project Announces Roth Award for Domestic Violence Programs Focused on Under-Served Populations


"As part of its annual Celebrating Solutions Awards honoring innovative programs in the United States that demonstrate promise in ending the generational cycle of domestic violence, the Mary Byron Project has created the Roth Award to reward and spotlight domestic violence programs that address the needs of under-served populations.

"Eligible programs provide services to populations (including those based on age, race, ethnicity, gender, faith, disabilities, low socioeconomic status, sexual preference, and victims from economically comfortable suburban areas) that traditionally do not know how to avail themselves of services or who are too ashamed to find them.

"One Roth Award will be presented annually in addition to the other four Celebrating Solutions Awards. Eligible programs may be nominated for both the Celebrating Solutions and Roth Awards, but may only receive one $10,000 grant.

"To be eligible for the award, a program's primary focus must address the issue of intimate partner violence. The nominated program, agency, or organization, as well as the core components of the program being nominated, must have been operating for a minimum of three years (established no later than September 2010 for the 2013-14 award year); be operating when the nomination is made; and be part of a nonprofit 501(c)(3) or government agency. The program should be replicable, or, if it is national in scope, should have applications for individual communities regardless of their size or ethnic population.
