Funding for Services to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Survivors
All ODSVS funds are awarded non-competitively to non-profit organizations and Tribal Nations serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence. Grant awards are based on the joint formula allocation of ODSVS funds to services areas around the state. The major portion of ODSVS funds are allocated and awarded for the provision of domestic violence services, including prevention and legal services. ODSVS funds are also ‘set aside’ for the provision of sexual assault and culturally specific services. ODSVS grant awards for the 2019-2021 biennium are scheduled for July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2021.

Joint Formula Allocation
All ODSVS funds are allocated through a joint formula for the purpose of equitably distributing non-competitive federal and state grant funds to non-profit organizations that provide advocacy services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence. The joint formula was established in 2006 after completion of an ‘Equity Allocation Study’. The formula is designed to cover personnel costs only for a critical response to survivors. It is not intended to meet the full funding needs of organizations and Tribal Nations identified as recipients within the joint formula. The formula established a base amount for each service area regardless of population, with the remaining funds being distributed by population for each service area. To learn more about the history and structure of the joint formula, read Funding Towards Equity.
