OVW Priority Areas: In FY 2021, the Department of Justice is interested in prioritizing projects that build upon the department’s foundational mission and core values, promote civil rights and access to justice, and protect Americans and combat evolving threats. These values are also inherent in the grant programs supported by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). OVW strongly encourages applicants to consider and document ways in which their projects can and will promote civil rights (including by meeting the needs of underserved and marginalized survivors), improve access to justice, enhance survivor safety, and hold offenders accountable.
