Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $33,521)

The purpose of this project, one of several sites selected under the State Victim Assistance Academy Initiative for year 1 (planning phase) is to support states in developing effective strategies for planning, implementing, and sustaining new State Victim Assistance Academies (SVAA). First year planning efforts should lead to the development of a comprehensive, academically-based, fundamental education and skills building training for victim assistance providers, victim advocates, criminal justice personnel, and other allied professionals who routinely interact with victims of crime. The Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, in collaboration with Western Kentucky University as the academic partner, proposes to plan for the establishment of the Kentucky SVAA. ca/ncf
