Grants to USA public law enforcement agencies for programs to support and assist victims of crime while navigating the criminal justice process. Funding is intended for programs to connect victims of crime with community based programs that will quickly and effectively serve them.
This program will develop or enhance crime victim specialist programs within law enforcement agencies to better support victims through the criminal justice process including by connecting them with community-based direct victim services programs to more quickly and more effectively serve them. Among the most immediate needs are often referrals to victim assistance and compensation programs and informing them of their rights as crime victims.
Funding under this program will support an estimated 80 victim specialist grants to state, tribal, and/or local law enforcement agencies—preferably divided among small, mid-sized, and large jurisdictions—to hire staff to develop new programs or enhance existing law enforcement-based victim specialist programs. These programs should have a strong focus on assisting and supporting victims in high-crime areas and communities particularly affected by violence, and improving care and services to these crime victims.
In addition, significant funding is available for potential awards to support law enforcement based victim specialists focused specifically on serving tribal communities or populations.
Training and technical assistance (TTA) will be available to law enforcement agencies funded under this program.
