Agency Solicitation:

OVC seeks to fund organizations to provide for the basic needs of crime victims, such as transportation, temporary and transitional housing, clothing, food, and other items necessary for their well-being, healing, or safety. Applicants should have experience providing direct services to crime victims in communities that have been historically marginalized, adversely affected by inequality, and disproportionately impacted by crime, violence, and victimization.


Additional Notes:

OVC is using this funding opportunity to test a new design and approach to accepting applications. For the first time, OVC will allow applicants to prepare a project plan in one of three ways, including a questionnaire, a video submission, or an oral presentation.
