The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is seeking population certifications from eligible applicants to signal their intent to participate in the noncompetitive FY 2021 Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside Formula Grant Program. If your tribe intends to participate, you must submit a population certification by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on Friday, March 5, 2021.

Population certifications will be used to determine formula award amounts for each applicant. Those applicants will then be invited to submit a full application under a subsequent solicitation to be released later in 2021. Learn how to submit your population certification.

Note: If you applied in FY 2020, you may resubmit the population certification form from that application period if the data is still accurate. If your tribe plans to use the population certification form from the FY 2020 application period, the form must still be submitted to OVC by Friday, March 5, 2021.If you have questions about the population certification, contact OVC at
