OVC FY 2022 Advancing Hospital-Based Victim Services

The goal of this solicitation is to support evidence-based models, practices, and policies that improve partnerships between the victim services field and hospitals and other medical facilities to increase support for crime victims. The objective of these partnerships is to provide comprehensive, coordinated, culturally relevant, trauma-informed services and support that address the full range of victim needs. This solicitation will fund up to three demonstration sites that operate hospital-based/affiliated programs to support crime victims using evidence-based models and practices with victim-centered approaches.

The demonstration sites will develop plans to provide comprehensive services that aid in the survivor’s physical and emotional recovery. OVC encourages a focus on responding to community violence and victims of gun violence; however, potential sites may consider using hospital-based/affiliated services and other related approaches to support multiple types of victimization in their proposed projects. Demonstration project applicants should include detailed descriptions of the specific approach they will follow to reach victims of violence, and explain how the approach will be used to improve victim outcomes. Applicants should also include a detailed explanation of how their program partners will assist in meeting the complex needs of the victims served. These details should cover how referral networks and collaboration between the hospital-based programs, community-based organizations, law enforcement, and other public agencies will be strengthened for the purpose of improving the response to victims of gun and community violence. 

Deadline: June 8, 2022
