Grants Awarded to Help Domestic Violence Victims & Survivors


65 programs across the state will receive funding as part of a $5 million investment to support the needs of survivors and victims of domestic violence.

Delivering on Governor Hochul’s State of the State priority, this year’s Enacted Budget established the Survivors Access Financial Empowerment (SAFE) fund as a recurring funding stream for survivors of domestic violence. The Governor also secured $35 million in the Budget to provide law enforcement and district attorneys with the tools they need to prevent and prosecute crimes of domestic violence through evidence-driven, survivor-centered, and trauma-informed interventions.

A list of programs receiving awards is available here.

“I remain deeply committed to supporting New Yorkers impacted by domestic violence and to investing in new strategies to address the harms of abuse,” Governor Hochul said. “For many survivors, limited access to finances remains an obstacle to securing greater safety for themselves and their families. This investment in targeted emergency assistance will allow survivors to gain stability and focus on healing.”
