Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and 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 that required registrations may take several weeks.

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, stalking, and sexual assault 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 2020, OVW is interested in supporting the priority areas identified below. Applications proposing activities in the following areas will be given special consideration.

  1. Reduce violent crime against women and promote victim safety through investing in law enforcement, increasing prosecution, and promoting effective prevention.
  2. Increase efforts to combat stalking.
  3. Address the specific challenges that rural communities face in responding to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  4. 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.

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET.

The total number of participants for the session may be limited, and therefore interested participants from the same agency/jurisdiction are expected to participate together.
