Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA tribal governments, organizations, and consortiums to address crimes against women during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to five weeks to complete. Funding is intended for activities that address tribal needs in responding to violent crimes against women that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 national emergency.

This solicitation allows tribes (and as applicable, tribal designees, tribal organizations, and tribal nonprofit organizations) to submit short, simplified applications for special funding under the OVW Grants to Tribal Governments Program and the Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program. Eligible applicants may apply to both programs covered by this solicitation, regardless of the status of current applications or awards under these programs. Funds must be used to meet specific COVID-19 related needs relevant to the purposes of each grant program, not to support entirely new projects.

This solicitation provides funds dedicated to COVID-19 related needs under the following two grant programs: the Grants to Indian Tribal Governments Program and the Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program. 

Tribal Governments Program: The program is designed to assist tribal governments and authorized designees of tribal governments to respond to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, sex trafficking, and stalking in their communities. For additional information about this program and related performance measures, see  https://www.vawamei.org/grantprogram/tribal-governments-program/

Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program (TSASP): TSASP supports projects to create, maintain, and expand sustainable sexual assault services provided by tribes, tribal organizations, and nonprofit tribal organizations within Indian country and Alaska Native villages. For additional information about this program and related performance measures, see https://www.vawamei.org/grant-program/tribal-sasp-program/.

For examples of proposed activities and purpose areas, see pp. 6-7 of the Solicitation in Supporting Documents below.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications will be reviewed and processed as they are received. To be considered, an application must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (E.T.) on September 16, 2020. Submitting the application at least 48 hours before September 16, 2020, will enable the applicant to receive notice of a failed submission and provide an opportunity to correct the error before the deadline.

Notification: OVW anticipates notifying all applicants of funding decisions by November 30, 2020. Note: For applications submitted by August 20, 2020, OVW may be able to make awards by September 30, 2020.
