Grants to California facilities to provide services to assist survivors of crime. Funding is intended for services, community outreach, collaboration with other providers, and trainings to first responders, medical staff, and other service providers. Funding is also intended for survivors who typically are unable to access traditional services.

The California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) provides reimbursement to eligible victims of crime for many crime-related expenses. CalVCB funding comes from restitution paid by criminal offenders through fines, orders, penalty assessments and federal grant funds. Government Code sections 13963.1 and 13963.2 mandate that CalVCB administer a program to evaluate applications and award grants to trauma recovery centers (TRCs) in California to provide services to victims of crime.

The grant program awards funding for TRCs to provide trauma-informed services to victims of crime. Grantees will serve all victims of crime; whether or not they meet CalVCB’s eligibility requirements provided the services are consistent with this Notice of Funds Available (NOFA).

The Personnel component of the budget (salaries, wages, and fringe benefits) must constitute a minimum of 75 percent of the total amount of funds requested. Staffed or contracted clinicians must account for a minimum of 60 percent of the funds allocated to the Personnel component of the budget.

Direct Costs are costs that can be clearly attributed to specific services, examples of direct costs include:

  • Salary and benefits for personnel providing direct treatment.
  • Operating expenses related to direct services such as rent, insurance, utilities, postage, telephone service, internet costs, subcontractors, printed outreach materials, and other costs approved by the board
  • Emergency funds to help clients with nominal crime-related costs to meet the immediate needs of TRC clients such as transportation, childcare, food, emergency shelter, or clothing (If an organization elects to budget for an emergency fund, it must be limited to one percent (1%) of the total grant award.)
  • Costs associated with community outreach events and activities
  • In-state travel costs for staff to perform eligible activities (Travel will be paid according to the state policy in effect at the time the cost is incurred, travel expenses must be reasonable and necessary to the activity being performed)
  • In-state training and conferences for the provision of trauma-informed evidence-based and evidence-informed practices as outlined in the grant application and approved in advance by CalVCB for clinical and nonclinical staff
