Cooperative agreement to a USA or territories nonprofit organization, public agency, or IHE to implement nationwide community outreach and educational activities related to crime victim rights and services. Applicants are advised to verify or create the required registrations well in advance of the deadline date.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is seeking applications for funding for the implementation of the 2022 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) Community Awareness Projects (CAP). This program furthers the Department’s mission by supporting public awareness, community outreach, and education activities for crime victims’ rights and services.

This cooperative agreement will enable an organization to provide financial and technical assistance to approximately 50 communities nationwide to conduct public education and awareness activities on crime victims’ rights and services in their jurisdictions during the 2022 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW). All final decisions as to which communities will be funded by the intermediary will be made by the OVC Director. 

To further assist victim service providers in their efforts to conduct public awareness activities during NCVRW, OVC will select an applicant to pass-through funds and serve as the technical assistance provider to competitively selected subgrantees. The recipient will work cooperatively with OVC in the application review and selection process for community awareness projects. 

For specific information about subrecipient activities, see https://ovc.ojp.gov/funding/fy-2021/o-ovc-2021-14001.pdf#page=5.

The goals of this project are to increase public awareness of crime victims’ rights and services nationwide during the 2022 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and strengthen the capacity of victim assistance agencies to develop a broad, collaborative approach to community awareness that highlights services for all types of crime victims.

For objectives and deliverables, see https://ovc.ojp.gov/funding/fy-2021/o-ovc-2021-14001.pdf#page=6.
