Maricopa County Domestic Violence Reduction Program Grant
MARPA Covid 19 Stabilization Grant Funds Award Announcement
Through funds from the American Rescue Plan Funds, Maricopa County is providing funding to reduce funding gaps that nonprofit domestic and sexual violence service providers experienced as a result of COVID-19. Domestic and sexual violence service providers all reported significant decreases in revenues and funding because their primary funding sources, federal contracts/funds, and fundraising efforts declined because of COVID-19. Specifically, current and future federal cuts for victim services and an inability to raise donations because of the COVID-19 pandemic cause significant revenue losses for service providers while service needs remain high or have increased.
Funding is being distributed to help restore existing critical services levels for providers across Maricopa County and help ensure the stability of domestic and sexual violence service programs.
The total funding available is $4,760,000 over three years.
Applicants were required to meet the following Eligibility Criteria:
- Applicant Agency is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
- Applicant Agency is a qualified domestic and/or sexual violence service provider, which may include being a member of ACESDV.
