Title: Conforming STOP Violence Against Women Formula Grant Program Regulations to Statutory Change 

This rule proposes to amend the regulations for the STOP (Services Training Officers Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grant Program (STOP Program) and the general provisions governing Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Programs to comply with statutory changes and reduce repetition of statutory language. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was enacted on September 13, 1994, by title IV of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Public Law No. 103-322, 108 Stat. 1796. The STOP Program is codified at 42 U.S.C. 3796gg through 3796gg-5 and 3796gg-8. The final rule for this program, found at 28 CFR part 90, subpart B, was promulgated on April 18, 1995. General provisions affecting OVW programs were also promulgated on April 18, 1995, and are found at 28 CFR part 90, subpart A. This rule proposes to amend the general provisions and the regulations governing the STOP Program to comply with the amendments to these programs enacted by the Violence Against Women Act of 2000 (VAWA 2000), Division B of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, Public Law No. 106-386, 114 Stat. 1464 (Oct. 28, 2000), the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005 (VAWA 2005), Public Law No. 109-162, 119 Stat. 2960 (January 5, 2006), and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013), Public Law No. 113-4, 127 Stat. 54 (March 7, 2013). These proposed changes to the regulations incorporate the statutory changes, make minor technical corrections, implement enhanced administrative and planning practices for formula grantees, and streamline existing regulations to reduce repetition of statutory language.
