Crime Victims Board

Victim and Witness Assistance Program Grant Award Process

The Crime Victims Board awards grants to local community-based organizations to help the organizations provide services to victims of violent crimes. In response to a request from Board officials, we reviewed the grant award process to determine whether it could be enhanced. We determined that the Board effectively considers the needs of crime victims when awarding the grants. We also determined that the process might be enhanced if additional information about these needs was taken into account during the process. Board officials agree with our suggestions for enhancing the grant award process.
