Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $72,125)
Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services Final Report (Vision 21), a framework for strategic change in the victim services field. The goal of Vision 21 is to change the way we respond to victims in this Nation, through a comprehensive and systemic approach, to ensure that every victim of crime receives the best responses and services. Vision 21 outlined recommendations in four broad categories: (1) conduct continuous rather than episodic strategic planning; (2) support the development of research; (3) ensure the statutory, policy, and programmatic flexibility to address enduring and emerging crime victim issues; and (4) build and institutionalize capacity through an infusion of technology, training, and innovation to ensure that the field is equipped to meet the demands of the 21st century. The Vision 21: Building State Technology Capacity program addresses the needs of state compensation program grantees to build electronic data collection capacity. This program is specifically for the improvement of data collection efforts to help increase the accuracy of administrative reporting through the OVC Performance Management Tool. CA/NCF
