The Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program (AEAP) provides supplemental crime victim compensation and crime victim assistance following criminal mass violence or domestic terrorism incidents. This grant program is by invitation only. AEAP is a mechanism by which the Director of OVC may award supplemental crime victim compensation and crime victim assistance to respond to an act of terrorism or criminal mass violence. The event must be sufficiently large that the jurisdiction cannot provide needed services to victims of the incident with existing resources while also supporting victims of other crimes in a timely and comprehensive manner. Along with non grant training and technical assistance services, there are four types of grants that may be combined into one application: . crisis response (to provide support in the initial aftermath of an event), . consequence management (to help victims adapt and restore their equilibrium), . criminal justice support (to facilitate victim participation in the judicial process), and . crime victim compensation (to help state crime victim compensation administrative agencies reimburse victims for out of pocket expenses). Funding provided under AEAP is retroactive to the date of the incident and applicants should consider the full range of both compensation and assistance program funds when applying for an AEAP grant. Funding justification must demonstrate that AEAP funds will support only victims of the event and show that requested funding is supplemental to existing resources. OVC may provide a consultant to aid the prospective grantee with the application process including help in identifying victim related expenses. The prospective grantee and OVC will collaborate to refine the application prior to the final application submission.
