OVC is seeking applications for funding to improve linkages between the victim services field and hospitals and other medical facilities that increase support for victims of crime, improve outcomes, and reduce chances of future victimization.
Category 1: Demonstration Sites
This program will fund up to three demonstration sites that operate hospital-based/affiliated programs to support crime victims using evidence-based models and practices with victim-centered approaches.
The demonstration sites will develop plans to provide comprehensive, victim-centered services that aid in the survivor’s physical and emotional recovery. OVC encourages a focus on responding to community violence and victims of gun violence, but potential sites may consider using hospital-based/affiliated services and other related approaches to support multiple types of victimization in their proposed projects.
Category 2: Technical Assistance Project
One entity will be selected to provide comprehensive technical assistance to the demonstration sites and develop technical assistance tools and resources to support the initiative.
OVC anticipates making up to three awards under Category 1 of up to $500,000 each and one award under Category 2 of up to $500,000. OVC expects to make awards for a 24-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2021.
During a pre-application webinar on Monday, June 7, 2021, OVC staff reviewed solicitation requirements and conducted a question and answer session with interested potential applicants.
