Eight organizations received funds, training, and technical assistance to help them evaluate their intimate partner violence prevention programs and to build their capacity to evaluate other programs in the future. An evaluation of the practices across all of the programs was conducted to understand the implications for other intimate partner violence prevention efforts. The eight grantees evaluated 11 different projects. Most projects evaluated under the program focused on reframing social and cultural norms away from tolerating or justifying intimate partner violence and towards developing healthy relationships.
