The program provides for the development, operation, and management of OVC’s National Center for Culturally Responsive Victim Services. The Center will facilitate the delivery of national-scale, high quality training and technical assistance to increase access to victim services and victim compensation for victims of crime in areas that have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by inequality, including communities of color.

The goals of this program are to:

  1. promote racial equity in victim services and compensation by enhancing the organizational and programmatic capacity of victim service organizations run by and for historically underserved communities, including communities of color;
  2. provide comprehensive, training and technical assistance to advance services to victims of crime; and
  3. build the capacity and infrastructure of organizations that provide victim services in underserved communities as all or part of their mission.

OVC anticipates making one award of up to $3 million for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2021.
