(FY 2017 - 2019) Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Grant Program (SADVGP)

These Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Grant Program (SADVGP) Guidelines provide detailed guidance to aid applicants in determining eligibility, developing itemized budgets and budget narratives, and completing other related forms, including service delivery targets. Using the guidance presented in this document, applicants should be able to efficiently and effectively prepare complete applications. These guidelines are a combination of the Sexual Assault Grant Program and the VOCA Domestic Violence Grant Program (formerly administered by the Virginia Department of Social Services). In an effort to streamline the grant processes at DCJS, one application must be submitted by continuation grantees to apply for a combination of both funding streams. The projected maximum award amounts for each continuation program can be found on the attached List of Projected Maximum Awards.
