Funding Opportunity: 2018 National Identity Theft Assistance Network Expansion Program

The Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), through a cooperative agreement with U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), announced a new grant opportunity under the National Identity Theft Assistance Network Expansion Program (NITVAN II).

Through NITVAN II, ITRC awarded six grants to coalition leaders across the nation in 2017. Learn more about these identity theft and cybercrime coalitions.

ITRC anticipates making up to 10 additional awards to organizations that will develop and lead an identity theft and/or cybercrime coalition.

This funding opportunity builds on prior NITVAN II efforts, and will further strengthen the network previously established. Each coalition will work to expand services to better address the rights and needs of identity theft and/or cybercrime victims. Applicants may achieve this goal through various initiatives, including, but not limited to—

  • community outreach and public awareness campaigns,
  • improved interagency infrastructure, coordination, and referrals, and
  • education and training of service professionals within the geographic region.

Successful applicants will be awarded up to $50,000, for a period of 1 year (October 2018–September 2019).

Learn more and apply by July 31, 2018.
