Emergency Relief Program for Survivors of Domestic and Gender-Based Violence

In partnership with Sanctuary for Families, the Mayor's Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence have launched a new program to provide funding for immediate safety, economic, and housing needs currently worsened by the pandemic. The Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence (ENDGBV), Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund, and Sanctuary for Families will work with a network of service providers to distribute “micro-grants” directly to survivors based on need. You can find more information and resources online or by calling the NYC Domestic Violenence Hotline. 

This resource is for New York City residents.
