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 Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is committed
to enhancing the Nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing policies and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime.
OVC is seeking applications to establish or expand sexual assault examination programs, including sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) programs and sexual assault forensic examiner (SAFE) programs that focus on improving the provision of sexual assault care using a community-based approach, such as through a campus community, nonprofit, community-based, and/or tribe-affiliated victim services provider.
This solicitation will also fund one applicant to provide technical assistance (TA) to all awarded recipients under Purpose Area 1 and previously funded Fiscal Year 2020 OVC SANE Campus grantees.
This program furthers the Department’s mission by increasing the quality and quantity of services available to victims of sexual assault.
