OVW Fiscal Year 2021 Grants for Outreach and Services to Underserved Populations Solicitation

This program is authorized by 34 U.S.C.

§ 20123 to develop and implement outreach strategies targeted at, and provide victim services to, adult or youth victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking in underserved populations.

Survivors from underserved

credit:


populations face challenges in accessing comprehensive and effective victim services that are accessible, culturally relevant, and responsive.

As a result, survivors from underserved communities often do not receive appropriate services.

The Underserved Program supports projects that address these gaps.

Funds may be used to:
develop or enhance population specific victim services; develop or enhance outreach strategies to reach underserved survivors; build the capacity of population specific organizations to serve survivors of these crimes; build the capacity of victim service providers to provide victim services that are population specific; train and educate community partners and the criminal justice system on the needs of survivors from underserved populations; and develop culturally and linguistically appropriate materials for underserved survivors.
