  • Lack of funds for bus fare, subway or metro fare, ride-sharing expenses, and other transportation-related services
  • Need for clothing for adults, infants, children, or teens
  • Covering expenses for job-readiness such as appropriate work attire, fees for apprenticeship programs, or skill building courses
  • Additional staff or staff time to provide and oversee these services
  • Other challenges related to meeting the basic needs of underserved victims

Eligible applicants:
