The Office for Victims Programs (OVP) administers several state and federal grant programs that provide support for services to victims of crime. Grant funds are distributed to agencies that provide crime victim services through a competitive application process. The Crime Victim Services (CVS) Advisory Board reviews submitted applications and then provides their recommendations to the Executive Director of the Department of Public Safety for review and approval.
The following grants are included in the competitive application process:
Applications are due March 9, 2018 and will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. through ZoomGrants. ALL applicants should read the Navigating ZoomGrants and Setting up New ZoomGrants Accounts Instructions before starting the application. Note: If you are a current grantee, user accounts with the current Project Director listed as the Account Owner have been set up in the ZoomGrants system. This means the Project Director will receive ZoomGrants generated emails.
