The Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (API-GBV) was awarded $13.2 million through the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) under the 2021 American Rescue Plan (ARP) to distribute this funding to culturally specific organizations that serve sexual assault (SA) and domestic violence (DV) survivors.  

API-GBV will review proposals and select 15 community-based organizations to become an “ARP Support for Survivors Program Partner” or an “ARP Partner”. Each ARP Partner will receive a subgrant up to $300,000 in total costs in support of the proposed DV community-based project. ARP Partners can use funding to support, enhance, and/or expand existing projects. New projects may also be considered. API-GBV will fund 15 organizations with this capacity building fund. DV Capacity Building Fund projects must begin by March 1, 2023. Funding under this program ends February 28, 2025, inclusive of any no-cost extensions or other related modifications. ARP Partners have the option to conclude their projects earlier.
