OVC Supports Communities Responding to Terrorist Attacks and Mass Violence

“Through the Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program (AEAP), OVC supports victims and jurisdictions that have experienced incidents of terrorism or mass violence. AEAP is designed to supplement the available resources and services of entities responding to acts of terrorism or mass violence in order to ensure that a program’s resources are sufficient and/or not diverted to these victims to the detriment of other crime victims.” https://www.ovc.gov/AEAP/
 
OVC also created a “Helping Victims of Mass Violence and Terrorism: Planning, Response, Recovery, and Resources” Toolkit to help communities prepare for and respond to victims of mass violence and terrorism in the most timely, effective, and compassionate manner possible.
