The individual who is awarded funding under this program will work collaboratively with OVC and the crime victim services’ field to—
- identify barriers that prevent all victims of crime, including victims of color, from accessing and receiving compensation,
- improve support and resources for state victim compensation programs, and
- promote equity in access to and receipt of compensation funding.
OVC anticipates making one award of up to $400,000 for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2022.
OVC will conduct one pre-application webinar on Monday, June 6, 2022, from 1:00–2:00 p.m., eastern time. Participation in the webinar is optional. OVC staff will review the solicitation requirements and conduct a question and answer session with interested potential applicants. Register for the webinar.
