Funding Opportunity: FY 2018 Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside Program

OVC Funding Opportunity - Apply NowThis year, for the first time, the 2018 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act provides for 3 percent of funds from the Crime Victims Fund to be used to support a broadly applicable tribal set-aside program for Indian tribes to improve services to crime victims.

OVC is seeking applications for the FY 2018 Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside Program solicitation. Under the solicitation, OVC will award eligible tribes, tribal consortia, and tribal designees grants to support a wide-range of services for victims of crime.

In developing the scope of activities allowable with this funding, OVC took into account input from tribal leaders and other stakeholders regarding needs for victim services in tribal communities.

OVC anticipates making up to $110 million available through this solicitation to support tribes to improve victim services.

This solicitation has a streamlined, two-phase application process for this unique program.

Phase 1 applications are due by 9:00 p.m. e.t. on August 6, 2018.
