Grants to Georgia public agencies and nonprofit organizations to plan and operate a center for crime victims. Applicant agencies are required to receive certification prior to being awarded grants. Funding is intended to enhance the safety and support of victims. This grant addresses victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse at a minimum, but can also address human trafficking, stalking, and elder or dependent adult abuse.
Funding awarded will cover, at a minimum, personnel costs for a Family Justice Center Site Coordinator, supplies, and travel to attend the International Family Justice Center conference and to tour established FJCs. CJCC will provide technical assistance to funded communities to coordinate activities involved in creating and/or enhancing a Family Justice Center over a four-year funding cycle. Priority will be given to Tier 1 applicants.
According to the 2016 VOCA Program Rules, direct services or services to victims of crime are defined as those efforts that (1) respond to the emotional, psychological, and physical needs of crime victims, (2) assist victims to stabilize their lives after victimization, (3) assist victims to understand and participate in the criminal justice system, or (4) restore a measure of safety and security for the victim. For the purpose of the VOCA Crime Victim Assistance grant program, a crime victim or victim of crime is a person who has suffered physical, sexual, financial, or emotional harm as a result of the commission of a crime. Generally, funding cannot be used for the investigation of crimes or collection of evidence to further the prosecution of crimes.
Allowable costs can be found on page 32 of the RFA.
