Grants to Hawaii nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible regions for services that assist and support victims of crime. Funding is intended to create, improve, or enhance core victim services; develop, maintain, or expand innovative services to assist victims of crime; and/or to maintain existing VOCA-funded victim services. Service areas include the Counties of Hawaii, Kauai, and Maui (including Molokai and Lanai), and the City and County of Honolulu.
Services are defined as those efforts that (1) Respond to the emotional, psychological, and physical needs of crime victims; (2) Assist victims to stabilize their lives after victimization; (3) Assist victims to understand and participate in the criminal justice system; or (4) Restore a measure of security and safety for the victim.
The VOCA Rules define a “victim of crime” or “crime victim” as a person who has suffered physical, sexual, financial, or emotional harm as a result of the commission of a crime. The definition does not require the crime victim to report the crime to any law enforcement agency in order to receive VOCA-funded services. Although VOCA-funded programs in general cannot reimburse crime victims for expenses incurred as a result of the crime, victims are eligible for counseling, criminal justice advocacy, and other support services offered by VOCA-funded victim assistance programs.
For additional information about program requirements, see Pages 23-27 of the RFP in Supporting Documents, below.
For information about Scope of Work, see Page 29 of the RFP in Supporting Documents, below.
The Department will give priority to proposals providing services to victims in underserved populations through the awarding of additional points to the proposals during the proposal evaluation process. The following are populations that the Department has designated as “underserved populations” for the purposes of this RFP:
