The Office of Family Safety (OFS) is seeking applications for grants to assist Davidson County victims of interpersonal violence such as domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, stalking, child abuse, elder abuse, and stalking.  Priority is given to those applications filling a gap in services created by COVID-19 and safer at home mandates.   Priority is also given to those applications that have an active on-site collaborative working relationship with the JCAC and Family Safety Center staff and clientele.

Primary Goals & Outcomes of Domestic Violence targeted CPF funds

Goal:  To better meet the crisis needs of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, child abuse and elder abuse that are not otherwise provided by Metro Nashville Government and are not sufficiently provided for by other community agencies.

Distribution of CPF Funds: 

Non-profits that have previously received CPF Funds may apply for funding up to $50,000.  Nonprofits that have not received CPF funds may apply for funding up to $25,000.

OFS has discretion to award more than $50,000 per non-profit if the proposals received are not sufficiently competitive. In such instance, OFS will work with select applicants to revise the awarded agency’s proposed scope of work and budget accordingly.
