Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, IHEs, public agencies, and tribes to improve services for crime victims. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support initiatives that demonstrate innovative strategies to create, expand, or enhance the use of technology in innovative ways to interact directly with crime victims and/or to provide information, referrals, crisis assistance, and longer-term help.
Through this program, OVC will support initiatives to maximize the use of technology to improve and increase access to crime victim services. Funding under this initiative may support technology development and maintenance; the staff required to operate, update, and maintain the proposed platform or service; training and technical assistance on the purpose and use of the technology (including outreach and publicity activities); and staff engaged in coalition-building activities regarding the use of technology. This funding should not supplant or duplicate currently funded initiatives in these areas. Applicants who propose to use this funding for ongoing, rather than new, initiatives must specify how these funds would be used to expand or enhance current services while not duplicating existing efforts.
Purpose Area 1: Innovative and technological solutions to enhancing access to services

The objective of this program is to expand a national hotline to interact directly with crime victims and/or to provide information, referrals, crisis assistance, and longer-term help. The hotline should be staffed by experienced case managers who provide direct service provision and personalized support to crime victims, using trauma-informed approaches that protect the safety and confidentiality of victims. The hotline, at a minimum, should incorporate the following approaches:
