The goal of this program is to enhance or expand the capacity of national victim service hotlines to provide crisis intervention support services using trauma-informed approaches that protect the safety and confidentiality of victims.

OVC encourages applications that focus on—

  1. addressing online gender-based abuse and harassment;
  2. offering services that respond to online-facilitated gender-based violence;
  3. training hotline personnel on how to respond to issues of online harassment and abuse, particularly toward women and girls along with LGBTQ and nonbinary people and other marginalized groups; and
  4. using technology to make services safe and more accessible, and to reach underserved communities.

OVC anticipates making up to three awards of up to $2 million each for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2022.
