Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories agencies, IHEs, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and tribal entities for programs that address intentional injuries to girls. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for training, technical assistance, and community services to address and help stop the practice of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGMC).

The goal of this program is to reduce the harmful consequences of FGMC in the United States.

The objective of this program is to deliver community-based programming to stop FGMC by educating communities where FGMC might be a risk about the medical consequences of FGMC and forming community networks of agencies and organizations that are positioned to identify girls at-risk and respond to eligible survivors/victims.

Deliverables include:

  • Direct service provision to survivors/victims, at-risk individuals, and communities
  • Community outreach
  • A final report describing project activities, promising practices, challenges encountered, and solutions to address those challenges
