Grants to Kentucky nonprofit organizations and government agencies for services and activities to provide support to crime victims. New applicants must register in the online application system prior to applying. Funding priority will be given to programs that provide services to victims of sexual assault, spousal abuse, and child abuse.
The first three priority categories have been clearly defined by Congress as being victims of child abuse, victims of domestic violence and victims of sexual assault. A fourth category was added in 1988, for previously underserved victim populations, to be defined by each state. Subsequent to publishing the initial program guidelines, OVC has determined that victims that fall under the first three priority categories will not be eligible for consideration under the category of “previously underserved.”
The Commonwealth of Kentucky defines its previously underserved victim populations as any of the following: survivors of homicide; elderly victims of abuse; survivors of incest; victims of financial crimes including identity theft; victims of robbery and other forms of violence against persons, including victims of drug and alcohol related crime; victims of ritualistic abuse, and victims of juvenile crime.
