Consortium TA Team COVID-19 Special Topic Series: Flexible Funding

SHP Logo

Communities are finding that flexible funding (financial support provided to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) and human trafficking) is an effective strategy to address the economic, housing and safety impacts of violence that are compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation will address how LifeWire, a King County, WA program, is meeting survivors' needs with flex funding coupled with advocacy while navigating the challenges social distancing can present. Advocates from the New York City's Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence (ENDGBV) and their partner, Sanctuary for Families, will discuss how they are distributing flexible funds to directly support survivors in need across the city through funding provided by the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.


The special topic series is designed to give advocates a chance to learn more about the available housing funding for survivors, ask questions, process issues, and provide mutual support on the impact of the COVID-19 virus in safe housing programs.
