Division of Criminal Justice is Accepting Applications for Crime Victim Services Funds
The Office for Victims Programs within the Division of Criminal Justice is now accepting applications for federal Crime Victim Services Funds. The deadline to submit applications is 11:59 p.m., March 9, 2018.
The Office for Victims Programs administers several state and federal grant programs that provide support for services to victims of crime. Grant funds are awarded 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:
- Victims of Crime Act (VOCA)
- S.T.O.P. Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
- State Victim Assistance and Law Enforcement (State VALE)
- Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP)
A total of approximately $52,000,000 from all four funding sources (VOCA, VAWA, SASP and State VALE) is estimated to be available for this funding process. The vast majority of available funds are federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funds.
Applications must be submitted online through Zoomgrants. For more information and application instructions, visit the Crime Victim Services Funds page.
