Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations and government agencies for the provision of supervised child visitation and exchange services. Programs will serve families and children who are at-risk due to circumstances related to family and domestic violence. Examples of eligible activities include exchange monitoring, on-site supervision, therapeutic supervision, educational parenting classes, recording observations of visits, and referrals to other services.
It is the intention of this grant program to provide as wide a range of coverage to the citizens of the state as possible. Assistance may encompass a wide range of support services. Specific services to be provided and the specific target group should reflect local needs and priorities.
Through the Grant Program, the Victims Services Division seeks to ensure that Kansas crime victims: 1) are aware of their rights, 2) have their rights protected, 3) are aware of the services available to them, and 4) have access to quality services. Please ensure that the application you submit describes fully how the proposed project will provide quality services to victims in the service area specified in the project proposal.
