The VSS Program administers grant funds that provide partial funding to local and statewide crime victim service programs in Iowa.

Grant Application and Review Process

When grant funds become available from the state or federal government funding information is distributed through the website.  You can find out more information about available funding and how to submit an application by clicking on the State of Iowa's Grants Management System at the following link.  

The submitted proposals are reviewed and evaluated by a volunteer grant review committee. The committee is made up of persons with expertise in victim services, grant management, and public policy.

The review committee and CVAD staff submit their recommendations for funding to the Crime Victim Assistance Board. The Board determines final grant awards to the extent funds are available and to the extent the applicants meet eligibility criteria.
