Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, public agencies, and tribes to improve services for crime victims. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended for programs and activities that demonstrate innovative strategies to create, expand, or enhance the use of technology to interact directly with crime victims and/or to provide information, referrals, crisis assistance, and longer-term help.

The goal of the grant program is to increase access to victim services and build the capacity of service providers to meet the needs of crime survivors through technological innovation. Applicants will achieve these goals through the following objectives:

  • Conduct strategic planning activities to identify gaps in technology that can be enhanced by building the organization’s technological capacity to ensure greater access to victim services that are sustainable, secure, and safe.
  • Implement technological enhancements to strengthen the organization’s response to crime victims and that will ensure high-quality services that are centered in victim safety, confidentiality, and privacy.
  • Prepare and support staff through training on the technology platform and the organization’s confidentiality and privacy guidelines, appropriate to the services provided and populations served.
  • Collaborate with local, state, and community stakeholders to share information, resources, and lessons learned.
  • Conduct training and public awareness activities for professionals and community members to ensure appropriate education and awareness of the program.
  • Perform data collection and participate in evaluation activities to determine the effectiveness of the program and whether it is meeting stated goals and objectives.

This funding should not supplant or duplicate currently funded initiatives in these areas. Applicants who propose to use this funding for ongoing, rather than new, initiatives must specify how these funds would be used to expand or enhance current services while not duplicating existing efforts.

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community.
