How to Apply

Any adult, or a parent or guardian acting on behalf of a minor or an incapacitated person, may apply to the program if they are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking and meet the eligibility requirements. It is not required to have a restraining order, criminal charges, or even to have reported the abuse to participate in the program.

Additionally, if you are a resident of Vermont, you can apply to the Safe at Home program with a designated domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking victim advocate or victims assistance programs.
