This program will support one fellow assigned to OVC’s State Victim Resource Division. The Fellow will work with Compensation Administrators to identify resources (e.g., best practices) and what OVC can implement to better support states in the administration of state victim compensation programs, including increasing access to compensation and receipt of compensation for victims of color, who historically have not accessed or received compensation funding at the same rate as other eligible victim populations.

OVC anticipates making up to one award of up to $400,000 for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2021.
