OVC FY 2022 Protecting Futures: Building Capacity to Serve Children and Youth Impacted by America's Drug Crisis

OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats and builds trust between law enforcement


and the community.

This program will provide funding to support an entity that will (1) competitively select and fund subawards to support direct services to children and youth who are crime victims impacted by the Nation’s drug crisis, and (2) provide technical assistance to the selected subawardees.

For this program, the following definitions apply:
Drug or substance use refers to a person taking a drug, either prescribed or not, in a way other than it is intended to be used.

Polyvictims are victims or survivors of more than one type of victimization (such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, bullying, and exposure to family violence) and those who have experienced multiple victimizations over a lifetime (Finkelhor, D., Turner, H., Ormrod, R., Hamby, S., & Kracke, K.


Children’s Exposure to Violence:
A Comprehensive National Survey.

U. S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention).

Children and youth who are crime victims impacted by the Nation’s drug crisis may be polyvictims, and therefore have complex service needs including a potential need for support services to their families.

This program is intended to address the complex needs of children, youth, and their families impacted by the Nation’s drug crisis.
