Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $75,000)

Through this FY 07 Action Partnerships Cooperative Agreement, Arc of Aurora, with collaborative support of The Arc of the United States, will conduct training at conventions in 8-12 state chapters of The Arc to provide information on 1) the incidence, prevalence and impact of crime victimization--including child abuse, stalking, domestic violence, and dating violence--on people with developmental disabilities, and 2) collaborating with victim assistance organizations. The project will include follow-up support for attendees that will help them use what they learn and will allow Arc of Aurora to measure and evaluate the trainees' outreach success.
