FY 2014 Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program for Crime Victim Compensation and Assistance (PDF 229 kb)
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. Please contact Eugenia Pedley at eugenia.pedley@ojp.usdoj.gov or Barbara Robertson at barbara.robertson2@usdoj.gov for more information.
