The Disability Grant Program was statutorily created in the Violence Against Women Act of 2000 and reauthorized by subsequent legislation with a goal to create sustainable change within and between organizations that results in increased capacity to respond to individuals with disabilities and Deaf individuals who are victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and to hold perpetrators of such crimes accountable.
Funding levels under the Disability Grant Program for FY 2016 are as follows:
- New, local-focused project $425,000
- Continuation, local-focused $300,000
- Continuation, state-focused $325,000
Eligible entities for this program are:
