Michigan has opened its application process for organizations to apply for funds (pdf) through the Federal Victims Of Crime Act (VOCA). If you are an organization in Michgan that works with crime survivors or victims’ families, you may be eligible to apply through this RFP process.
Through our VOCA Funding Toolkit, and assistance from our Grassroots Capacity Building Specialist, EJUSA can help groups determine if they are eligible, answer questions about the process, and provide some support for your group’s application. Please contact Latrina Kelly-James at firstname.lastname@example.org or (203) 823-5826 or download the toolkit here.
Note: the deadline is fast approaching – August 18, 2016.
Our VOCA project works to bring racial equity to victim services by helping community groups serving crime survivors in communities of color to gain access to new resources. We provide training, technical assistance, and capacity building to these community groups so they know what federal VOCA funds are and how to get them.
