On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (H.R.1), which includes $4 billion in Department of Justice grant funding to enhance state, local, and tribal law enforcement efforts, including the hiring of new police officers, to combat violence against women, and to fight internet crimes against children.

Specific Office on Violence Against Women investments in the Act include $175 million for the STOP (Services • Training • Officers • Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grant Program and $50 million for the Transitional Housing Assistance Grant Program.

The STOP Program also provides funds for Grants to State Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions, the Indian Tribal Governments Grant Program, and the Tribal Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions Grant Program.
