FY 2021 National Census of Victim Service Providers

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is seeking

credit: DUI

an applicant to assist BJS in developing and administering the 2022 National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP).

The NCVSP is part of BJS's larger Victim Services Statistical Research Program, an effort to develop a statistical infrastructure around victim services and address major gaps in our knowledge about the availability and use of services to support victims of crime or abuse.

The first NCVSP was conducted in 2017 and surveyed all agencies providing crime victim services in the past six months, either as the primary function of the agency or with dedicated staff or programs.

Victim service providers (VSPs) are diverse in type, including criminal justice agencies (e.g., law enforcement agencies, prosecutor's offices, corrections agencies, etc.), other governmental organizations (e.g., child or adult protective services), non-profit or faith-based organizations, tribal organizations, hospital or medical facilities, and educational institutions.

Overall, the initial NCVSP provided a baseline description of the field and a starting point for monitoring the field over time.

This solicitation will fund the second (2022) NCVSP collection, including:
(1) researching and updating the NCVSP frame; (2) revising the NCVSP instrument; (3) cognitively testing the NCVSP instrument, and (4) administering the NCVSP to approximately 12,500 VSPs and screening out ineligible entities (estimated at about 1,500-2,500).
