Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, agencies, IHEs, tribal governments, and faith-based organizations to establish or expand services to child and youth victims of opioid-related crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several days to complete. Funding is intended to support crime victims and to enhance community-driven responses to the current opioid crisis.

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 anticipates that this solicitation will support service providers in expanding their current scope and expertise to ensure that children and youth—the most vulnerable victims impacted by the opioid crisis—are supported as they heal from the impact of crime and substance abuse.

Funding authorizations for this program limit allowable expenses to those associated with serving crime victims. Examples include programs and services that provide awareness about victimization and the resources available to victims, direct services that provide for the needs of crime victims, and support to navigate the complex systems often associated with victimization (e.g., criminal justice, child welfare).

The overarching goal of the Enhancing Community Responses to the Opioid Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims program is to support children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis by providing direct services and support to these young victims at a community or jurisdictional level.

Objectives:

- 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.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants are limited to nonprofit and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for-profit organizations), faith- and community-based organizations, colleges and universities (including tribal institutions of higher education), public agencies, state agencies, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior. (A determination by the Secretary of the Interior is not required for tribes to which federal recognition was extended by virtue of Public Law 115-121, the Thomasina E. Jordan Indian Tribes of Virginia Federal Recognition Act of 2017.)

Note: Separate and unique funding is available for tribal applicants, and therefore OVC anticipates that they will not “compete” with non-tribal applicants due to the availability of that funding.

All applicants must be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the effects on children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the opioid crisis. Applicants should have proven experience in serving this unique niche of crime victims; and knowledge and understanding of the best practices to support these crime victims.

Applicants must have the staff, resources, and capacity to develop new initiatives or enhance existing programs proposed to address the areas of victimization described in this solicitation (see pages 6-12 for additional details about this program).

Applicants must be willing to work cooperatively with OVC and a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider specified by OVC. Grantees will be required to participate in a program assessment if OVC elects to conduct an evaluation of this program.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

OVC will consider applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees).

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants must register with Grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/register.html prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on July 11, 2019.

To be considered timely, an application must be submitted by the application deadline using Grants.gov, and the applicant must have received a validation message from Grants.gov that indicates successful and timely submission.
