Grants to Kansas private or public nonprofit organizations and local or state government agencies for programs that provide assistance to victims of crime. Funding is intended for programs that will assist victims in their recovering from physical suffering, financial loss, and emotional trauma. 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.
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.
Activities may include, but are not limited to, twenty-four hour crisis intervention and support or emergency services; counseling; assistance with compensation claims, creditors, community referrals, 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.
