Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board

The Michigan Domestic and Sexual Abuse Prevention and Treatment Board (MDSVPTB), launched in 1978, was a result of legislature that authorized a board that would be overseen by the governor and tasked with directing state efforts against domestic violence. 


Governor Rick Snyder established the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board in 2012 and transferred to it all of the MDSVPTB's authority, powers, duties, functions, and responsibilities. The Board prepares recommendations for policy, creates technical assistance, and manages both state and federal financing for services in relation to domestic and sexual abuse.


The services offered include protective services, public safety, domestic violence, and more.
