Public Awareness in Underserved Communities

OVC recently launched this pilot project to raise the awareness of traditionally underserved populations on victims' rights as well as to improve their knowledge about how to access local services available to crime victims. Grant awards were made to five organizations to support the planning and development of victimization-focused public awareness campaigns targeted at underserved populations with limited English proficiency (LEP) in the local community. Victim service organizations will work in partnership with ethnic media (radio, print, television) as well as ethnic- and/or faith-based organizations to produce linguistically and culturally appropriate public awareness campaigns on one or more victimization issues.
