    Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board

    The Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board (MDSVPTB) was established in 1978 by state legislation that created a Governor-appointed Board responsible for focusing state activity on domestic violence. The Board offices are administratively housed within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

    In 2012, Governor Rick Snyder issued an executive order creating the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board, and transferring to it all of the MDSVPTB's authority, powers, duties, functions, and responsibilities. The Board develops and recommends policy; develops and provides technical assistance and training to the criminal justice, child welfare, etc.; and administers state and federal funding for domestic and sexual violence services.

    The seven-member Board represents a cross-section of professions concerned with the crime of domestic and sexual violence. Members are appointed by the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Senate. Staff provided by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services assists the Board in carrying out their legislative charge.
