In addition to grant administration, the Office for Victims Programs (OVP) conducts a series of special projects designed to provide support for services to victims of crime. Click on a collapsible text box to learn more about a statewide special project.
This special project aims to increase the continuum of services for a variety of civil legal service needs of crime victims. For an introduction to the project view the Introductory Webinar (MP4) or Introductory Presentation (PDF). For project updates, visit the DCJ Grants Calendar.
As part of the work of this Special Project, GIS Researcher Susan Buckingham mapped a variety of data points/factors for the state of Colorado. While the Project was initiated to support the work of the Special Project, these maps can be applied more broadly as programs seek to not only identify the characteristics of their communities’ crime victims but to then use the data to tailor their services to meet their communities’ specific needs. The Map Book (PDF) is broken down into 9 regions and is further broken down by the variable. In addition, Ms. Buckingham created Economic and Social Vulnerability Composite Models (PDF) and a single map that compares the Colorado Self Sufficiency Standard with Per Capita Income statewide (PDF). If you have questions about the maps, please contact OVP.
This special project aims to address and implement new, innovative methods of housing provision for crime victims across the state.
