Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA (and its territories) local agencies, states, tribal governments and organizations, and nonprofits for services to women with disabilities who are victims of gender-based or domestic violence. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline.

The goal of the Disability Grant Program (DGP) is to create sustainable change within and between organizations that improves the response to individuals with disabilities and Deaf individuals who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and to hold perpetrators of such crimes accountable. DGP funds are used to establish and strengthen multidisciplinary collaborative relationships; increase organizational capacity to provide accessible, safe, and effective services to individuals with disabilities and Deaf individuals who are victims of violence and abuse; identify needs within the grantee’s organization and/or service area; and develop a plan to address those identified needs that builds a strong foundation for future work.

In FY 2021, OVW is interested in supporting the priority area(s) identified below. Applications proposing activities in the following areas will be given special consideration during the FY2021 funding recommendations.

  1. Reduce violent crime against women and promote victim safety through investing in law enforcement, increasing prosecution, and promoting effective prevention.
  2. Serve sexual assault survivors. To qualify for this priority, applications must propose a sexual assault focus and include a sexual assault service provider as a member of the multidisciplinary collaborative team.
