Exciting New Funding Opportunity for Sexual Violence Prevention
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), PreventConnect/California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (PreventConnect/CALCASA) and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence (NAESV) have established a new partnership (The National Partners) in order to increase visibility of, and access to, sexual violence prevention expertise. This initiative has received seed funding from the National Football League (NFL) to coordinate prevention, policy, and messaging efforts; establish a presence in the Washington, DC metro area; and to award grants to advance a variety of promising practices and policies that can be replicated.
PreventConnect and our national partners are excited to launch this new funding opportunity for 501(c)3 organizations who have experience with addressing and/or preventing sexual violence. We are seeking to fund replicable promising practices to:
- Improve response to victims of sexual assault;
- Reduce the likelihood of perpetration of sexual assault; and/or
- Strengthen communities’ capacity to create safe environments.
