In FY 2017, OVC funded the first National Mass Violence Victimization Resource Center to—

  • establish a centralized resource that would assist communities in being better prepared and equipped to provide victims of mass violence and domestic terrorism with timely, comprehensive trauma-informed services; and
  • support from planning for incident response through longer-term recovery and healing.

OVC seeks to maintain the Center to identify and develop evidence-based best practices that address the comprehensive needs of these victims and those who engage with them, with an emphasis on addressing mental- and behavioral-health issues.

OVC anticipates making one award of up to $8.9 million, consisting of up to—

  • $5.1 million for overall Center activities,
  • $3.5 million for Improving Community Preparedness to Assist Victims of Mass Violence or Domestic Terrorism: Training and Technical Assistance activities, and
  • $300,000 for a conference.

The award will be for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2023.
