Grants to USA states and territories to prevent, identify, and respond to violent crimes affecting women. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to help communities, including Tribes and Alaska Native villages, to strengthen and develop responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

OVW Priority Areas In FY 2022, OVW is interested in supporting the priority area(s) identified below. In shaping their strategies for FY 2022, OVW encourages states and territories to develop and support projects that:

  1. Advance racial equity as an essential component of ending sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
  2. Increase access to justice for all survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including through exploration of survivor-centered criminal justice system reform.
  3. Strengthen efforts to prevent and end sexual assault, including victim services and civil and criminal justice responses.
  4. Expand economic justice and financial advocacy for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including as a tool for violence prevention.
  5. 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 FY 2022, states and territories may apply for additional funds (up to ten percent of the three-year average of combined STOP and SAS Sexual Assault Services (SAS) formula grant funds, with 75 percent of that amount supplementing the SAS award and 25 percent supplementing the STOP award) if the state meets the requirements of the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act (RSCCA). To qualify, the state or territory must have a law that allows the mother of a child conceived through rape to seek court-ordered termination of the parental rights of the rapist with regard to that child, which the court is authorized to grant upon clear and convincing evidence of rape. The effective date of the qualifying statute must be on or before October 1, 2022. States may receive the additional funding under the RSCCA up to four times.
