    $18,200,000 was available in 2020.

    Additional Information

    Priority Areas:

    • VOCA requires states to allocate at least 10% of its total award to each crime victim category of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.
    • An additional 10% of the funds must be allocated to victims of violent crime who were previously underserved. The Nebraska Crime Commission has identified underserved as victims of federal crimes, human trafficking, robbery, assault, burglary, arson, homicide, elder abuse, stalking, kidnapping and intoxicated drivers. Populations identified as underserved are minorities (people of color), individuals who are ages 65 and over, and those living in rural areas.
    • Applicants may as a whole, or in-part, address one or more of these stated priority areas. If a proposal addresses only a specific type of crime victim, the number of potential victims which could be served by the applicant will be a consideration in funding decisions.
    • In the development of an application the applicant should also take into consideration areas of recommendation outlined in the Nebraska Strategic Plan for Victims and Survivors of Crime 2015 – 2020. 2020_Victims_Survivors_Plan.pdf
