This program will provide funding for shelter and transitional housing and other assistance to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking and their companion animals.

Applicants are invited to apply under two categories. OVC anticipates making up to 5 Category 1 (large awards) of up to $400,000 each and 10 Category 2 (mini awards) of up to $100,000 each. Awards will be for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2022.

Mini awards are designed for shelters and other transitional housing services for victims of domestic violence and their companion animals that may only be seeking funding for smaller purchases such as kennels, cages, crates, pet supplies, beds and other items that may be necessary to housing domestic violence victims and pets together.
