Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, IHEs, public agencies, businesses, and tribes to improve services for crime victims. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support initiatives that demonstrate innovative strategies to create, expand, or enhance the use of technology on a national scale to improve responses, services, and access for victims of crime.

OVC’s mission is to enhance the Nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing policies and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime. Through this program, OVC will support national-scope initiatives and regional initiatives (that can be replicated nationally) to maximize the use of technology to improve and increase access to crime victim services.

Funding under this initiative may support technology development and maintenance; the staff required to operate, update, and maintain the proposed platform or service; training and technical assistance on the purpose and use of the technology (including outreach and publicity activities); and staff engaged in coalition-building activities regarding the use of technology. 

The goal of this program is to develop innovative strategies to create, expand, or enhance the use of technology to improve response, services, and access for victims of crime. Deliverables include:
  • Direct service provision to crime victims, using trauma-informed approaches that protect the safety and confidentiality of victims;
  • Culturally and linguistically appropriate community outreach events and materials;
  • Resources for service providers and criminal justice stakeholders; and
  • A final report describing project activities, promising practices, challenges encountered, and solutions to address those challenges in order to improve outcomes for crime victims.
