FY18 General Victim Assistance Direct Services Programs Grant Applications

IMPORTANT: There are significant changes in the General Victim Assistance – Direct Services application process for FY18.


The purpose of the General Victim Assistance – Direct Services Program is to provide services and assistance directly to victims of crime to speed their recovery and aid them through the criminal justice process. 

Please read if your agency has a currently funded General Victim Assistance grant:

Currently funded General Victim Assistance projects with 25-month grant period of 9/1/2015 through 9/30/2017:   If you wish to resubmit the same project for FY18, workshop attendance is mandatory and your 24-month continuation application will not be scored, per NCTCOG Policies and Procedures.  If you wish to request funding for a new and substantially different project than what is currently funded, you must create a separate 12-month application and it will be scored. 

Currently funded General Victim Assistance projects with 24-month grant period of 10/1/2016 through 9/30/2018:  Per the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD), projects currently funded for 24 months (grant period 10/1/2016 through 9/30/2018) are not eligible to apply in FY18 for the same services within your currently funded project.  You may, however, apply for a new and substantially different 12-month project; workshop attendance is mandatory and the new 12-month project will be scored. If you are currently funded for the 10/1/2016 through 9/30/2018 grant period and will not be submitting an application for a substantially different project to be scored, you don’t need to attend a GVA workshop.

Currently funded General Victim Assistance projects with 12-month grant period of 10/1/2016 through 9/30/2017: If you wish to resubmit for the same project for FY18, workshop attendance is mandatory and your 24-month continuation application will not be scored, per NCTCOG Policies and Procedures.  If you wish to request funding for a new and substantially different project than what is currently funded, you must create a separate 12-month application and it will be scored. 

Please read if your agency is not currently funded for a victim services project:

Agencies new to Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) General Victim Assistance funding wishing to submit a first year project must attend an NCTCOG General Victim Assistance Grant Application Workshop session. Per CJD the request may not exceed a 12-month grant period and your General Victim Assistance application will be scored.  Workshop attendance is mandatory.


If your agency anticipates using a grant writer who is not an employee of your organization, an organization employee must also attend.  Furthermore, contract grant writers will not be allowed to sign in for multiple agencies they may be representing.  It is imperative that the applicant agency sends a staff person in order to be clear on the submission process and scoring criteria associated with this region. 

Note: Agencies applying for funds to support a CASA or Children’s Advocacy Center program must apply through either Texas CASA, Inc. or Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas.

Important: Read the General Victim Assistance Direct Services Program Funding Announcement document below to determine if your agency is eligible to apply and that your proposed project fits within the eligibility criteria. Other handouts will be posted as they become available.
