Grants to California facilities to support victims of crime. Funding is intended for salaries, community outreach, collaboration with other providers, and trainings to first responders, medical staff, and other service providers. The program is intended to provide trauma-informed services to all victims of crime.

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 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, subcontractors, printed outreach materials, and IT equipment with prior CalVCB approval
  • Emergency funds to meet the immediate needs of TRC clients with nominal crime-related costs such as transportation, childcare, food, emergency shelter, or clothing
  • Costs associated with community outreach events and activities
  • For in-state travel, as well as training and conferences for the provision of trauma-informed, evidence-based, and evidence-informed practices as outlined in the grant application, a written explanation providing details of the event and relevance to TRC activities must be submitted at least two weeks in advance via email
