Overview

The goals of this program are: (1) to assist law enforcement in developing, implementing, and assessing comprehensive evidence-based, trauma-informed, response strategies, protocols, and interventions for law enforcement agencies that promote community engagement and healing prior to and in the wake of law enforcement-involved shootings and other high-profile incidents of violence; and (2) to develop and disseminate comprehensive, expert technical assistance resources to law enforcement on trauma-informed culture and practice, to improve an agency’s internal capacity to understand and process the impact of vicarious trauma and community harm.

Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants are limited to private nonprofit organizations, including but not limited to those that work with law enforcement and on criminal justice issues. Applicants must have demonstrated knowledge, expertise, and experience in advancing trauma-informed law enforcement response to victimization, particularly with incidents involving police-involved shootings, and other high-profile and crisis incidents. Additionally, applicants must be able to identify and work with key stakeholders and effectively select and manage a minimum of six law enforcement demonstration sites that will address the impact of trauma within the law enforcement organization and in community responses. Applicants should also have experience in providing technical assistance on trauma-informed culture and responses by law enforcement agencies, and in strategic planning, community collaboration, and coalition building. OVC welcomes applications that involve two or more entities that will carry out the funded federal award activities; however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipient(s). The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire project. Only one application per lead applicant will be considered; however, a subrecipient may be part of multiple proposals.

OVC may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
