OVC will make awards under two purpose areas to identify promising multidisciplinary practices in addressing the needs of families and communities in complex homicide cases. Under Purpose Area #1, OVC will make up to six awards of up to $600,000 each to organizations that demonstrate experience in responding to complex homicide cases and have capacity to implement multidisciplinary responses. Funding under Purpose Area #1 will also support researcher/practitioner partnerships at each site to conduct program evaluation and identify evidence-based practices that can be replicated in other communities. Under Purpose Area #2, OVC will make one award of up to $1.5 million to one technical assistance (TA) provider who will identify TA needs of the six direct service sites, convene grantee meetings, and compile a compendium of promising practices suitable for electronic publication and dissemination. Applicants are urged to begin in advance of the June 20, 2016, deadline.
