Become a Grantee

Are you interested in becoming an OVW-funded Underserved Grantee?

OVW Underserved Program Grantees receive multi-year funding to support their organization’s efforts to reach and serve survivors from underserved populations and to access no-cost technical assistance for the optimization of programmatic success.

Typically, the grant solicitation for the Underserved Program opens once around the early part of the year, and award notifications are sent in the Fall.

Connect with Underserved Grantees

Find out which organizations are currently funded by the Underserved Program, where they are located, how to connect with them, and learn more about their work helping survivors from underserved communities.
