One discretionary grant of $175,000 will be awarded to plan and administer the 2016 National Joint Training Conference for VOCA Victim Assistance and Victim Compensation Administrators, a 2.5-day conference that will provide training and technical assistance for Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) administrators, staff, and board members; and facilitate a forum for the presentation of state issues and practices. The conference will employ lectures, panels, workshops, and forums to explore ways to improve the delivery of crime victim services; provide an opportunity for VOCA administrators to exchange information, views, and experiences; and provide training and technical assistance on effective program operations. Those applying are strongly encouraged to begin the application process well in advance of the July 13, 2015, deadline.
FY 2015 Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program for Crime Victim Compensation and Assistance (PDF 334 kb)
Application Deadline: Open
The Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program (AEAP) is a mechanism by which the Director of OVC may award supplemental crime victim compensation and assistance to respond to an act of terrorism or mass criminal violence. The criminal act has to be of sufficient magnitude that it overwhelms the affected jurisdiction’s or program’s ability to respond to the event. This is a restricted solicitation because the program is intended to respond to specific cases of terrorism and mass violence. Only after OVC has consulted with an eligible organization can an application be submitted.
