The Allstate Foundation has partnered with the National Network to End Domestic

Violence Fund to establish the Education and Job Training Assistance Fund. The fund channels small grants to survivors of domestic violence in order to achieve their educational and job-related goals. Survivors can receive up to $1,000 for specific educational and training needs. The fund is intended to help survivors achieve greater independence over their financial lives as well as establish options for themselves in the future.

The Allstate Foundation has committed $75,000 to the fund and plans to contribute an additional $75,000 later this year, with additional funding in subsequent years.

The Education and Job Training Assistance Fund supports career-advancement activities such as professional licenses, workforce tools, and additional job training. Specific examples include licensing fees (nursing, social work, etc); books and supplies for school; job skills training (e.g., resume building, interview preparation, clothing); tuition; requirements for jobs (e.g., uniforms, tools); registration fees; temporary child care so that the applicant can attend school, take a class, or look for employment; public transportation; and rental fees for computer time at a computer center.

Any survivor of domestic violence is eligible to apply, although the fund requests that the application be completed by a local domestic violence program or a domestic violence coalition.
