Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and nongovernmental, community-based domestic violence or sexual assault agencies to improve services for polyvictimization survivors. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support the development of holistic treatment centers. In addition, one organization will be selected to provide technical assistance to the new sites.

This program furthers the Department’s mission by improving how victim service providers respond to survivors of polyvictimization (when a person endures multiple victimizations of different kinds, as opposed to experiencing a single type of victimization repeatedly). The primary goal of this program is to support Family Justice Centers or similar co-located service model agencies as they transform service delivery to more effectively meet the needs of polyvictims.

Under this solicitation, OVC plans to fund cooperative agreements to expand the work and lessons learned from OVC’s FY 2016 demonstration initiative, “A Pathway to Justice, Healing, and Hope: Addressing Polyvictimization in a Family Justice Center.” Through this initiative, a polyvictimization assessment tool was developed, validated, and pilot-tested for use in identifying polyvictims and building capacity in Family Justice Centers (FJCs) to serve polyvictims in a more holistic manner.

This FY 2019 program will build on the lessons learned from the FY 2016 FJC Polyvictimization Initiative. Through this new solicitation, up to six FJCs or similar co-located service model agencies will be selected to:

- Implement the validated assessment tool (see Appendix A);
- Increase partnerships with traditional and non-traditional FJC services to serve identified polyvictims more holistically;
- Expand case management services to include a thorough understanding of the specific needs of the survivors; and
- Build capacity within their communities to leverage existing and new resources for crime victims.

In addition, through this FY 2019 solicitation, one organization will be selected to provide comprehensive technical assistance (TA) to the six new sites selected under this program.
