Survivor Crisis Fund - The Network


survivor crisis fund

The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence established the Survivor Crisis Fund to address critical gaps in the safety net for survivors of gender-based violence and human trafficking. Once an application is received, we will review it for eligibility for any funds we currently have and will provide a response.

The basic eligibility to receive funding is that you are a victim/survivor of domestic violence, sexual abuse, stalking and/or human trafficking. Beyond that, we have various eligibility guidelines imposed by our funding sources.

This financial assistance is intended to be a one-time payment and is typically not available in an emergency.

Our application portal is temporarily closed. Please come back to this page at 10:00am on March 1, 2024. Please click HERE to read our FAQ.

If you have questions, email

If you would like to be connected to your local domestic violence or sexual assault agency, who may be able to assist you with other services, call the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline at 877-863-6338.
