Recipients of OVW grants submit progress reports to OVW using the reporting forms on a semi-annual (discretionary grant programs) or annual (STOP formula and SASP formula) basis. This data is then transferred to the Violence Against Women Act Measuring Effectiveness Initiative (VAWA MEI) at the Muskie School where it is cleaned and analyzed. Using this data, VAWA MEI creates a Biennial Report to Congress for the discretionary grant programs and a yearly Report to Congress for the STOP grant program.
