Crime Victim Services Funds



      Picture of landscape

      The Office for Victims Programs (OVP) administers several state and federal grant programs that provide support for services to victims of crime. Grant funds are distributed to agencies that provide crime victim services through a competitive application process. The Crime Victim Services (CVS) Advisory Board reviews submitted applications and then provides their recommendations to the Executive Director of the Department of Public Safety for review and approval.

      The following grants are included in the competitive application process:

      Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) 

      STOP Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

      State Victim Assistance and Law Enforcement (State VALE)
