Faith-Based or Community Organizations and Victim Services Discretionary Mini-Grant Program

OVC awarded a total of $300,000 or up to 20 awards for up to $15,000 each to various faith- or community-based organizations and victim services agencies to enhance outreach and services to underserved crime victims in communities that have received Weed and Seed funding and other communities with a high rate of violent crime. The program's purpose is to expand and enhance existing victim assistance programs and to promote coalition building between the faith and victim assistance communities. Specifically, this initiative is intended to foster and support efforts of community groups and the faith community to reach and serve victims in high-crime areas, especially urban areas.
