OVC Funding Opportunity: “Enhancing Community Responses to the Opioid Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims”

The purpose of this solicitation is to address an urgent gap in crime victim services related to the opioid epidemic and to expand upon existing programs or establish new ones to provide services to children and youth who are victimized as a result of the opioid crisis. This solicitation has two purpose areas—
• Purpose Area 1 applicants will develop and execute plans to support children and youth directly at the community or jurisdictional level.
• Purpose Area 2 applicants will develop and activate plans to support the direct services applicants on a national scale, to equip and support the community-based programs as they develop new initiatives or enhance existing efforts.
 
OVC expects to make awards through this solicitation totaling up to $26 million for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2018.
 
OVC will conduct a pre-application webinar on June 6 from 1 to 2 p.m. e.t. to review requirements and conduct a question and answer session. Register now.
