Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Funding Opportunity: Reducing Child Fatalities and Recurring Child Injuries Caused by Crime Victimization

Through the FY19 Reducing Child Fatalities and Recurring Child Injuries Caused by Crime Victimization solicitation, OVC seeks to support the development of multidisciplinary strategies and responses to address cases involving children who have experienced serious or near-death injuries as a result of abuse and/or neglect, and to reduce child fatalities.

This solicitation has two purpose areas. Eligible applicants may apply to either purpose area, but not both.

• Purpose Area 1 — Demonstration Sites: OVC will fund up to five demonstration sites, and the initiative will be carried out in two phases; planning and implementation.
• Purpose Area 2 — Technical Assistance Provider: OVC will award funding to one organization (or group of organizations with one designated lead) to provide comprehensive technical assistance to the demonstration sites and actively share findings and lessons learned with the larger crime victims’ field. Apply by May 30, 2019.

OVC will conduct a pre-application webinar on April 10, 3–4 p.m. e.t., to review requirements and conduct a question and answer session. Register now.
