Grants to USA state and territory government agencies to support programs that assist victims of crimes. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. A portion of grant funds must be allocated by recipients to serve priority victim categories (domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault) and underserved victims of violent crime.
Under this solicitation, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) will award each eligible state and territory victim assistance program an annual grant to support eligible crime victim assistance programs in that state or territory.
Funds under this program shall be used by states and territories to support eligible crime victim assistance programs that provide direct services to crime victims, except for a maximum of 5 percent that may be used for administration and training.
Applicants must allocate a minimum of 40 percent of the total grant to the three priority victim categories (sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse) and underserved victims of violent crime by subawarding at least 10 percent to each of four categories. Underserved victims of violent crime are designated by the state administering agency by the type of crime or demographic characteristics of the victim, or both. This requirement may be waived by the OVC director upon a showing of good cause by the applicant.
