Each assistance profile has grants grouped together along one of four service areas: Correctional Services, Juvenile Services, Law Enforcement/School-Campus Safety, and Victims Services.

Grants are listed by the locality that administers the grant. Grants awarded directly to the administrative locality are identified with the character ‘»’.  Grants awarded to non-governmental agencies within the locality are identified with the character ‘●’. 

Grants to towns are shown in the profile for the county in which the town is located. The name of the town receiving the grant precedes the grant title, for example, ‘Wytheville – Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program’ and the amount of the grant appears in the assistance profile for Wythe County. Grants to universities or colleges are preceded with the school name (for example, ‘George Mason University – Violence Against Women (V-STOP)’) and the amount of the grant appears in the assistance profile for the locality that is geographically closest to the campus.

(FY 2017 - 2018) VOCA New Initiative Victim Assistance Grant Program

Many crime victims in Virginia may not receive services and support that adequately meet their needs after victimization. Meeting victims’ needs is far more difficult when their access to services is complicated by factors such as race, ethnicity, geographic isolation, language barriers, cultural differences, disability, lack of knowledge of the criminal justice system and their rights, and/or lack of appropriate social support. There is no single way to meet the needs of all underserved populations because of the uniqueness of each group.
