Grants to North Carolina nonprofits, Indian Tribal governments, law enforcement agencies, legal services programs, and community organizations for programs that support female victims of violent crimes. Funding is intended for programs in the service areas of law enforcement, victims services, prosecutors, or state and local courts, with a focus on sexual assault or culturally specific areas. The GCC encourages programs that involve partnerships, collaborations, and best practices to meet the needs of crime victims and others across the state.
The STOP (Services, Training, Officers, and Prosecutors) Violence Against Women Formula Grant Program (STOP Program) promotes a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to improving the criminal justice system’s response to violent crimes against women. STOP encourages the development and strengthening of effective law enforcement and prosecution strategies to address violent crimes against women and the development and strengthening of victim services in cases involving violent crimes against women. OVW grants help provide victims with the protection and services they need to pursue safe and healthy lives, while improving communities’ capacity to hold offenders accountable for their crimes.
