Grants to Tennessee nonprofit organizations that provide victim-offender reconciliation programming in support of the justice system. This program is open to centers that support the judiciary system and the community in a way that effectively carries out the goals of this program’s legislation.

The Victim Offender Reconciliation Program of Tennessee (VORP) was sanctioned by the legislature in 1993. State funding is distributed by the Administrative Office of the Courts to VORP centers pursuant to T.C.A. §16-20-101 et seq. To receive funding, centers must provide their services to the judiciary and the community in a way that executes the goals of the legislation as a whole.

Goals of the legislation include helping to meet the need for alternatives to the courts for resolution of felony, misdemeanor and juvenile delinquent disputes and encouraging community participation in the development, administration, and oversight of local programs designed to facilitate informal resolution of disputes.
