Funding Opportunity: OVC FY 2020 Crime Victim Compensation Program Assessment

OVC Funding Opportunity: Apply Now

OVC is seeking applicants for the OVC FY 2020 Crime Victim Compensation Program Assessment solicitation.

During this three-phase project, successful applicants will seek to increase awareness of victim compensation programs and interest in seeking victim compensation.

Phase 1: Conduct an assessment of the state's current compensation program, policies, and procedures regarding victims' access to compensation, which should include an analysis of applicable rules, regulations, statutes, and other relevant standards or policies providing guidance for the state's compensation program.

Phase 2: Develop an implementation plan based on the needs identified in the assessment. Successful applicants will also generate model recommendations and promising practices for their states that may be replicated in other states or territories in the future.

Phase 3: Execute the implementation plan of recommendations identified during the first two phases that will result in enhanced victim access to compensation funding.

OVC anticipates making up to 6 awards of up to $350,000 each. OVC expects to make awards for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2020.

OVC conducted an optional pre-application webinar on Thursday, March 5, 2020, to review requirements and answer questions. View a recording and transcript of this webinar.
