Increasing Legal Access to Rural Victims of Crime

April 03, 2018

In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), award number 2017-VF-GX-K130, we are excited to announce that we are soliciting proposals for the Increase Legal Access in Rural Areas grant (Project). This Project is intended to encourage innovative ideas and methods to increase legal services to crime victims in rural areas. Specifically, the Project is anticipated to fund sites that will leverage technology to provide holistic legal services, including enforcement of victims’ rights, to crime victims in rural communities. NCVLI anticipates awarding three subawards up to $750,000 starting in 2018 and ending August 31, 2020. Click here to learn more and apply.
