Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Civil Legal Services

We are accepting applications for this grant (2024-2025 funding period) until March 18, 2024. Current as well as potential new grant recipient organizations are invited to apply here. (Applicants must meet our criteria.)

Since 2015, the Wisconsin Legislature and Governor have approved a modest annual appropriation for civil legal services to some individuals who are victims of domestic violence or sexual abuse (DVSA).

The funding for this program comes from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funding that Wisconsin receives, so services are limited to clients with children who meet the financial eligibility rules for TANF services.

The funding is passed through the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families for a WisTAF-administered grant program providing legal services statewide in civil matters related to domestic abuse, sexual abuse, or restraining orders or injunctions for individuals at risk under Wis. Stat. 813.123.

This program was created by Wis. Stat. 49.1635(5)(a).
