The Manitoba First Nations Regional Board for Family Violence Prevention was created with the aim to empower communities, to build upon their strengths, communicate and network effectively, and provide prevention services through holistic, community-driven programming. The Regional Board was formed as a response to the need for Manitoba First Nations to strengthen their ability to design, administer, and manage the prevention projects funded through AANDC's FVPP.

The Board accepts prevention project proposals from Manitoba First Nation communities and makes recommendations to the AANDC regional office. This has increased the percentage of completed final reports and increased the number of communities submitting community-driven proposals to 100% from 65% in the previous year. The board also publishes bi-monthly newsletters, distributes educational materials, and supports the Manitoba Shelter Networking Group.

The Regional Board recognized that one of the first steps to preventing family violence is awareness. Supported by partners, the Regional Board designed an extensive family violence prevention awareness campaign for Manitoba's First Nations in the 2009-2010 year.
