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.
