Description

This program will provide funding for state agencies to establish state-run hate crime reporting hotlines designed to assist victims who might otherwise be reluctant to report hate crimes. 

The hotlines funded under this program are intended to support victims who might be reluctant to report hate crimes to law enforcement. Project designs should address how these victims will be assisted. Applicants must demonstrate their plans for collaboration with stakeholders (potentially including other hotlines) to complete a community resource map, which identifies the needs of the community and the resources available to address those needs through a hate crime reporting hotline; policies to govern the operation of the hotline; and outreach and marketing plans. 

OVC expects to make up to two awards of up to $1,125,000 each for up to a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2024.
