The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime is seeking applications for its Law Enforcement-Based Victim Specialist Program. This grant program is designed to develop or enhance crime victim specialist programs within law enforcement agencies to better support victims through the criminal justice process, including by connecting them with community-based direct victim services programs to more quickly and effectively serve them. Among the most immediate needs are often referrals to victim assistance and compensation programs and informing them of their rights as crime victims.
The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by July 25.
