The purpose of this project was to design a program, locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund an intimate partner violence prevention program for the Korean American immigrant community in Los Angeles County. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the prevalence and effects of intimate partner violence in the Korean immigrant community as well as identifying the need for culturally specific prevention interventions. A host agency was selected, Korean American Family Services, to propose a prevention workshop program in Los Angeles, California.
A search was conducted to locate an appropriate funder for the prevention workshops. The U.S. Department of Justice, Culturally and Linguistically Specific Services Program, was selected as a funding source for the grant program. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
