Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement to a USA individual to improve the capacity of agencies addressing the needs of victims of crime. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting an application. Eligible applicants are individuals with experience working with law enforcement agencies and allied partners to provide victim-centered, trauma-informed services and knowledge of the challenges, developments, and needs of law enforcement-based victim services. Applicants must be onsite at OVC in Washington, D.C., for a minimum of 1 week per month throughout a 36-month project period.

OVC will use this solicitation to support its ongoing investment in improving victim response with the main entity most victims encounter: law enforcement. The Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims (ELERV) strategy, initially released in 2009 and then improved for a second release in 2020, is an organizational strategy developed and tested with law enforcement’s direct participation and input. The strategy illustrates how every person in a law enforcement agency has a role in effective victim response and introduces law enforcement leaders to the challenges, methods, responsibilities, and benefits of enhancing their response to victims of crime. Implementing the ELERV Strategy can lead to broader communitywide trust and confidence in the police, foster the healing process for victims, increase victim participation in the criminal justice process, and produce stronger, more comprehensive cases to hold offenders accountable.

This program will support one full-time fellow at OVC housed within the Discretionary Division. The ELERV Fellow will work across OVC to identify ways in which OVC can promote the adoption of the ELERV strategy by law enforcement agencies across the country with the goal of improving the law enforcement response to victims and expanding law enforcement-based victim services.

The selected fellow will have demonstrated expertise in the ELERV strategy and in working with state, local, or tribal law enforcement agencies to provide victim-centered, trauma-informed services and to effect system change. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate an understanding of the challenges, developments, and needs of law enforcement-based victim services.

The goal of this fellowship program is to engage a full-time fellow to assist OVC with promoting the ELERV strategy, providing training and technical assistance to agencies interested in ELERV, and engaging with law enforcement agencies interested in improving agencywide victim response and creating in-house, law enforcement-based victim services. The efforts of the fellow will support OVC’s overall goal of increasing the number of law enforcement agencies using the ELERV model and providing law enforcement-based victim services.
