Domestic Violence Oversight Board Duties and Responsibilities

The Miami-Dade County Domestic Violence Oversight Board (DVOB) was created to serve in an advisory and oversight capacity to the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners with respect to issues affecting or relating to domestic violence. 

Specifically, the Miami-Dade County Domestic Violence Oversight Board was created to serve in accordance with State Law, to develop and submit to the Board of County Commissioners a comprehensive plan for the use of the portion of the local optional food and beverage sales tax proceeds dedicated to the provision of domestic violence centers as prescribed in Chapter 2, Article LXVI of the Code of Miami-Dade County.

As part of this plan, the Miami-Dade County Domestic Violence Oversight Board is further charged with pursuing maximization of available federal and state matching funds and generally monitoring and evaluating the provision of services to domestic violence victims.

The Board consists of 15 members; 13 members are appointed by the County Commission and two members are appointed by the County Manager. Members represent service providers, domestic violence victims, and advocates, members of the judiciary, impacted jurisdictions and the Public Health Trust. The Board does not provide direct client services.
