Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, Tribes, IHEs, for-profits, and individuals to support victims of crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to benefit residents in underrepresented communities.

OVC seeks applications to develop or enhance promising practices, models, and programs that offer innovative solutions to build the capacity of service providers to increase the service options and/or expand access points for victims of crime in underrepresented communities.

The overarching goal of this program is to generate proposals that reflect the authentic needs and challenges of the victim services field in responding to the current realities of crime victimization in the United States and its territories. This solicitation provides a vehicle for funding innovative approaches that do not easily fit within the criteria of other OVC solicitations.

In FY 2022, OVC will prioritize applications that document how the proposed project will address the needs of underserved victims, thereby improving access to justice. This program supports activities proposed by the field related to expanding accessibility and increasing service options for victims of crime who are underserved or who are part of an underserved community. 

There are no limitations on which victim-related topics the applicant may address; however, the proposal must clearly demonstrate a strong need for what is proposed, using relevant data and research. Innovative approaches can focus on issues that have long vexed the victim services field, or on the identification of new gaps in services or new approaches to addressing existing gaps. OVC is particularly interested in field-generated proposals that will increase the service options available or expand access to underheard and underrepresented victims of crime. Areas of particular interest to OVC include:

  • Service interventions that address victims of crime who are often overlooked when it comes to specialized services, e.g., victims of robbery, assault, carjacking, or burglary.
  • Innovative approaches to providing culturally relevant and culturally specific services.
  • Subaward programs that aim to fund smaller community-based programs that specialize in culturally specific services.
  • Demonstration programs that test approaches to increasing service options or expanding access borrowed from other disciplines, such as public health, psychology, social work, forensic science, or others.
  • Training or technical assistance models that can potentially reach unprecedented numbers of service providers. Innovative methods of information delivery and notification services for victims of crime.
  • Co-response approaches that partner service providers and public safety personnel in response to particular crimes, disturbances, or calls for service.
