Grant Description
Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations and IHEs for trainings and technical assistance to improve victim services. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended for programs that will reach more victims, particularly those who are underserved, as well as to conduct research and implement findings to improve victim services.

With this solicitation, OVC seeks to provide training and technical assistance (TTA) that ensures that the victim services field benefits from victim-centered practices; translates knowledge to enhance the use of data and research to understand victim needs; identifies and implements proven and effective practices; and enhances victim service accessibility and delivery.

Category 1: Reaching Underserved Victims: This solicitation will fund one organization, or a partnership of organizations, to reestablish the National Resource Center for Reaching Victims (NRC). The goals of the new NRC are to help the field reach more victims by ensuring services are accessible, improving the field’s ability to identify who is underserved or unserved, and developing victim-centered practices that improve outcomes for victims. To avoid overlap and duplication with other OVC-funded efforts, the new NRC will narrow its focus to children, boys and men of color, and former justice-involved individuals.

Category 2: Victim Research and Evaluation: This solicitation will fund an organization, or a partnership of organizations, to operate the Center for Victim Research (CVR). The goal of the new CVR is to increase the evidence base of the victim service field by promoting the use of data and findings from relevant research and evaluation to improve victim services. All activities in this area aim to improve the field’s ability to identify what is working; identify and fill gaps in knowledge and in services; and ensure the latest evidence is used to improve victim services.
