Grants and in-kind support to New Jersey nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, institutions of higher education, and Tribal entities to address domestic violence during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support and maintain domestic violence shelters, direct services, and culturally specific programs during the pandemic. Grants may be used to support prevention programs and services for adult and youth victims of family violence, domestic violence, or dating violence, as well as family and household members.

DCF-DOW has established the following priority areas for this grant:

  1. Alternative housing solutions for long-term stability
  2. Economic and financial programming
  3. Legal assistance
  4. Culturally specific programming
  5. Substance use and/or mental health concerns.

Domestic violence programs shall be designed to meet the needs of the target population, especially individuals that have been historically underserved. Underserved populations include groups that lack accessible or relevant services due to geographic locations, racial and/or ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation, or specific needs like language, disabilities, immigration status, or age.

Direct service is defined as any combination of allowable services, which include but are not limited to: housing; crisis response; counseling; victim advocacy; or legal assistance which is provided to domestic violence victims/survivors and/or their children.

For additional information about services to be funded, see:

All newly funded agencies through the ARP grant will be provided comprehensive technical assistance and support through DCF-DOW and its partner, the New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence. This support will assist new providers with grants and financial management, nonprofit administration, sustainability, stakeholder engagement, and more.
