Grants to USA and Territories nonprofit organizations for culturally focused services that assist women victims of domestic and gender-based violence. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to promote the development of innovative culturally specific strategies and projects that enhance access to services for victims who face obstacles to using traditional services and resources. Grants are available for new and continuation applicants.

Funds under this program must be used for one or more of the following purposes:

  1. Working with State and local governments and social service agencies to develop and enhance effective strategies to provide culturally specific services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  2. Increasing communities’ capacity to provide culturally specific resources and support for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking crimes and their families.
  3. Strengthening criminal justice interventions, by providing training for law enforcement, prosecution, courts, probation, and correctional facilities on culturally specific responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  4. Enhancing traditional services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking through the leadership of culturally specific programs offering services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  5. Working in cooperation with the community to develop education and prevention strategies highlighting culturally specific issues and resources regarding victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  6. Providing culturally specific programs for children exposed to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  7. Providing culturally specific resources and services that address the safety, economic, housing, and workplace needs of victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, including emergency assistance.
  8. Examining the dynamics of culture and its impact on victimization and healing.

Note: Applicants wishing to address Purpose Area 6 or 8 must do so in conjunction with one of the other program purpose areas. Proposals focusing only on these two purpose areas will be removed from consideration.

In FY 2022, OVW is interested in supporting the priority areas identified below. Applications proposing activities in the following areas will be given special consideration.

  1. Advance racial equity as an essential component of ending sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. In order to receive special consideration for addressing this priority, applicants must propose to address either or both Purpose Area 1 and/or Purpose Area 3 and demonstrate that the applicant will enter into the required community partnerships.  
  2. Improve outreach, services, civil and criminal justice responses, prevention, and support for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking from underserved communities, particularly LGBTQ and immigrant communities.  In order to receive special consideration for addressing this priority, applicants must demonstrate the capacity to implement projects that will reach LGBTQ survivors within their culturally specific community.
