OVC Funding Opportunity: Apply Now

OVC is seeking applicants for the OVC FY 2020 State Victim Liaison Project solicitation.

The State Victim Liaison Project will place one or more experienced crime victim liaison(s) within selected Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) State Administrating Agencies to help states enhance services to:

  1. crime victims who reside in rural/Tribal areas, and/or
  2. older victims (aged 60 years or older) of any crime, and/or
  3. victims of violent crime.

Liaisons will act as a bridge between the state and other state-based non-governmental organizations to identify gaps in victim services and improve and increase access to resources for crime victims in rural/Tribal areas, older victims, and victims of violent crime. Liaisons should possess statewide networking connections for effective interaction with community leaders, allied professionals, and community stakeholders to achieve the objectives of this project.
