Victims of Crime Act Assistance Program Funding
The Delaware Criminal Justice Council is soliciting applications for funding under the Federal Fiscal Year 2016 Victims of Crime Act (“VOCA”) formula grant program (the “Program”). The United States Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is charged with administering this Program, in conjunction with State agencies like the CJC. The Program is designed to provide funding to state and local units of government, non-profit organizations, and communities for direct services to victims of violent crime.
This solicitation is specifically seeking new programs to provide direct service to victims of crimes.
Per federal requirements of the VOCA-Assistance Formula Grant Program, the CJC has to ensure that a minimum of 10% of the federal award be used to serve each of the following categories of victims: sexual assault; child abuse; domestic violence; and previously “underserved” victims.
To be eligible, an organization must provide direct services to crime victims or clients with issues directly related to being a victim of a crime. The organization must be operated by a public agency or nonprofit organization, or a combination thereof. Organizations that have divisions, sections or components which offer services to crime victims or clients that have been victims of crime but provide other services or functions, are eligible. For example, criminal justice agencies, Faith-based and neighborhood programs, hospitals and emergency medical facilities that perform a wide variety of functions but are capable of providing direct services to crime victims, are eligible.
