NEW REPORT – Trust Survivors: Building an Effective and Inclusive Cash Assistance Program

March, 2021

In 2020, as a rapid response to COVID-19, we launched our Safety Fund and, to date, have given unrestricted cash grants to over 4,100 survivors from across the U.S.—representing every state, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

We are so excited to release our new report released in March 2021, Trust Survivors: Building an Effective and Inclusive Cash Assistance Program. In this report, we share what we learned from 1,000 survivors who received a Safety Fund grant in 2020 about how to build an effective and inclusive cash assistance program that will work for them. Overwhelmingly, survivors expressed that they need a program steeped in flexibility and trust.
