OVC will provide funding to support the development of multidisciplinary strategies and responses to effectively address children who have experienced serious or near-death injuries as a result of abuse and/or neglect, and to reduce child fatalities. OVC will fund up to five demonstration sites, and the initiative will be carried out in two phases – Phase I: Planning and Phase II: Implementation. The program will use a three-pronged approach: demonstration sites (Purpose Area 1), technical assistance (Purpose Area 2), and an implementation study (competed under a separate FY 2019 solicitation). All demonstration sites and the technical assistance provider will be required to participate in the implementation study. OVC conducted a pre-application webinar on April 10, 2019, and a recording and transcript of this webinar are available at www.ovc.gov/grants/webinars.html. Apply by May 30, 2019.
