Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Kansas private or public nonprofit organizations and local or state government agencies for programs that assist victims of crime. Funding is intended to help victims recover from physical suffering, financial loss, and emotional trauma; and to help reduce the incidence of child abuse and neglect. Support is also available for programs that assure proper and sensitive treatment of crime victims in the criminal justice process.

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. 

The CVAF Grant funding is for innovative projects. Funds may be utilized to increase, enhance, or expand an existing grant project as well as create innovative new grant projects to provide services to victims of crime. CVAF grant projects should not be viewed as an entitlement project, but, rather, short-term support for new or expanded innovative grant project activities. Eligible applicants should indicate how they are seeking other sources of funding to continue their grant projects and how their grant projects will continue to function without State Crime Victims' Assistance Fund monies.

Available funds shall be used solely for the purpose of making grants for ongoing operating expenses of programs, including court-appointed special advocate programs, providing: (1) Temporary emergency shelter for victims of child abuse and neglect; (2) counseling and assistance to those victims; or (3) educational services directed at reducing the incidence of child abuse and neglect and diminishing its impact on the victim.

Pre-Application Information:

CVAF grant applications must be submitted online by 11:59 pm on May 3, 2021.

If an applicant is submitting a grant application for a new program or project within the organization, then it MUST submit three current letters of support from three separate community partners.

State funding may be used to offset the cost of up to 75 percent of the proposed grant project. The required match is calculated at 25 percent of the total proposed grant project and must be in cash. Funds from any source that have been supporting these existing efforts may be used as a match against state funds. (To calculate the CVAF Match amount, divide the CVAF award amount by three.)
