Funding Opportunity: FY 2019 Enhancing Community Responses to the Opioid Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims

Apply for the FY 2019 Enhancing Community Responses to the Opioid Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims solicitation.

The purpose of this solicitation is to address an urgent gap in crime victim services related to the opioid epidemic and to expand upon existing or establish new programs to provide services to children and youth who are victimized as the result of the opioid crisis.

OVC developed the following objectives as a framework for applicants to be able to successfully achieve the overarching program goal of serving young victims of this crisis:

  • Objective 1: Deliver information, services, and support to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis.
  • Objective 2: Build and implement a feedback system to further identify and define the scope of the community- or jurisdiction-specific problem (related to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis), the associated victim needs, the resources and services available, and remaining gaps to be addressed.
  • Objective 3: Establish or enhance a seamless, comprehensive, community-driven, and multidisciplinary response to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis.

OVC will conduct one pre-application webinar on June 10, 2019, from 1:00–2:00 p.m., eastern time. Participation in the webinar is optional.
