Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Kansas private or public nonprofit organizations and local or state government agencies for new and established 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. 

It is the intention of this grant program to provide as wide a range of coverage to the citizens of the state as possible.  Specific services to be provided and the specific target group should reflect local needs and priorities.

Activities may include, but are not limited to, 24-hour crisis intervention and support or emergency services; counseling; assistance with compensation claims, creditors, community referrals, direct services, and restitution, with the exception that no direct compensation may be paid to a crime victim; prosecutor or court-related services; shelter support counseling, social services support, and criminal justice advocacy.
