OVC will make one award of up to $7 million to support law enforcement agencies, crime victims, and communities by developing, implementing and assessing evidence-based and trauma-informed law enforcement response strategies, protocols, and interventions which promote community engagement and healing prior to and in the wake of police-involved shootings and other high-profile incidents of violence. Strategies include responses to incidents featuring differences in race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or immigration status, whether the victim of the incident is a member of the community or an officer. The grantee will in turn competitively select and fund at least six law enforcement demonstration sites, provide oversight and technical assistance to them, and provide rapid response to other communities that experience law-enforcement involved shootings, death, or other crisis incidents. Apply by September 7, 2016.
