OVC seeks applications for funding to develop a toolkit for serving transgender victims of crime. The goal of this project is to update and expand upon the previously released 2014 OVC guide, Responding to Transgender Victims of Sexual Assault. This will be accomplished through the development of a web-based toolkit that will provide guidance, resources, and referrals for those who provide services to victims of crime who identify as transgender, especially women and girls of color.
OVC anticipates making up to one award of up to $750,000 for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2022.
During a pre-application webinar on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, OVC staff reviewed solicitation requirements and conducted a question and answer session with interested potential applicants.
