Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to develop and expand law enforcement-based direct victim services at the state, tribal, and local levels nationwide.

OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety, and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. OVC is committed to enhancing the Nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime.

OVC will use this Law Enforcement-Based Victim Services (LEV) Technical Assistance (TA) Program solicitation to select one organization to maintain a national level TA effort to develop, enhance, and sustain direct victim service programs within law enforcement-based systems to serve the needs and rights of all crime victims.

The funded project will be tasked with—

  • Providing dedicated TA supports to law enforcement-based victim service programs across the country, including the current OVC Law Enforcement-Based Victim Services (LEV) grantee programs; and
  • Developing a competitive subaward process to select a minimum of 7 new LEV sites in state, tribal, and local law enforcement agencies in small, mid-sized, and large jurisdictions.
