Information


The Temporary Assistance for Domestic Violence Survivors (TA-DVS) program is intended to help survivors escape domestic violence and stay safe.


Eligibility for TA-DVS

To receive TA-DVS money, you must be:

  • Fleeing domestic violence or trying to stay safe from domestic violence. This includes physical, emotional, or sexual abuse by a current or former intimate partner or a relative. You do not need to provide proof that you were abused, your words alone are enough.
  • A parent or caregiver of a minor child or a pregnant woman.
  • Income eligible. Your local DHS office will only look at the money that is available to you. If your abuser controls your finances, you can still receive TA-DVS money.
  • A resident of Oregon. You can receive benefits even if you are temporarily in Oregon in order to escape domestic violence or are undocumented.
