Transitional Housing Program

The Transitional Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking (Transitional Housing Program) supports programs that provide 6-24 months of transitional housing with support services for victims who are homeless or in need of transitional housing as a result of a situation of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, and for whom emergency shelter services or other crisis intervention services are unavailable or insufficient.

The program can fund transitional housing, short-term housing assistance, and voluntary support services for recipients of transitional housing, including counseling, childcare, transportation, and life skills, educational and/or job training.

Eligible applicants are limited to: states, units of local government, Indian tribes, and other organizations, including sexual assault and domestic violence victim service providers, sexual assault and domestic violence coalitions, other nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations, or community-based and culturally specific organizations, that have a documented history of effective work concerning sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking.

In 2022, the Transitional Housing Program gave out 72 awards, totaling over $35.6 million.

Once posted, the solicitation to apply for this program can be found on OVW’s website. Members of the public can also sign up for notifications on that website, and grant announcements are posted to OVW’s Twitter.

This program is authorized by 34 U.S.C. § 12351.
