Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, agencies, IHEs, tribal governments, and faith-based organizations to establish or expand services to child and youth victims of opioid-related crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several days to complete. Funding is intended to support crime victims and to enhance community-driven responses to the current opioid crisis.
The purpose of this solicitation is to address an urgent gap in crime victim services related to the opioid epidemic and to expand upon existing or establish new programs to provide services to children and youth who are victimized as the result of the opioid crisis. OVC anticipates that this solicitation will support service providers in expanding their current scope and expertise to ensure that children and youth—the most vulnerable victims impacted by the opioid crisis—are supported as they heal from the impact of crime and substance abuse.
Funding authorizations for this program limit allowable expenses to those associated with serving crime victims. Examples include programs and services that provide awareness about victimization and the resources available to victims, direct services that provide for the needs of crime victims, and support to navigate the complex systems often associated with victimization (e.g., criminal justice, child welfare).
The overarching goal of the Enhancing Community Responses to the Opioid Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims program is to support children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis by providing direct services and support to these young victims at a community or jurisdictional level.
- Objective 1: Deliver information, services, and support to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis.
- Objective 2: Build and implement a feedback system to further identify and define the scope of the community- or jurisdiction-specific problem (related to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis), the associated victim needs, the resources and services available, and remaining gaps to be addressed.
- Objective 3: Establish or enhance a seamless, comprehensive, community-driven, and multidisciplinary response to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis.
