Funding Opportunity from The Allstate Foundation to Help Culturally Specific Domestic Violence Organizations Impacted by COVID-19

October 27, 2020

To address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on survivors of color, particularly the economic challenges, The Allstate Foundation is providing $500,000 to help support domestic violence organizations and the survivors they serve. The Allstate Foundation will provide small, flexible grants to 100 culturally specific domestic violence organizations to offset hardships caused by the pandemic so programs can continue to respond to the urgent needs of survivors. Oversight and implementation of the small grants program will be provided by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV). Following the completion of this program, The Allstate Foundation will have provided more than one million dollars in small grants to U.S. domestic violence organizations in response to COVID-19.

This opportunity is open to culturally specific domestic violence organizations based in the United States (including all states, territories, and tribal lands) serving racial or ethnic minority communities, whose budgets do not exceed $750,000 per year. Organizations will be selected based on their eligibility, demonstrated need for resources, and their ability to use funds to impact the greatest number of survivors of domestic violence.

The application will be available through a SurveyMonkey link that can be accessed at starting on October 27, 2020. New application deadline is November 20, 2020.

Organizations that were previously awarded funds through the “Small Grants to Support Local Domestic Violence Organizations Impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic” funding opportunity in April and May 2020 are not eligible to re-apply. Organizations that previously applied but did not receive funding in April and May 2020 are eligible to re-apply, provided that they meet all applicable eligibility criteria.

Thank you to The Allstate Foundation for providing these rapid relief funds to the field.
