The Grants for Outreach and Services to Underserved Populations Program (Underserved Program) funds projects to develop and implement outreach strategies and enhanced services to adult and youth victims of domestic/sexual violence in underserved populations.
Grantees do this by building the capacity of both mainstream organizations and organizations specifically serving underserved populations to provide culturally appropriate and inclusive services, and increasing training and outreach activities of organizations providing services to underserved populations.
Survivors from underserved populations face challenges in accessing comprehensive and effective victim services that are accessible, culturally relevant, and responsive. The Underserved Program supports projects that address these gaps.
