How Do I Complete the LVAP (5%) Application for Certification?
WHO SHOULD APPLY
Any victim assistance program desiring to be certified by the CJCC to receive funds authorized under O.C. G.A. § 15-21-131 must submit a completed application with supporting documentation to the CJCC for consideration.
1. Victim serving organizations that are subgrantees of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC).
2. Any victim serving organization that is seeking eligibility to request 5% funds in counties it serves.
Once certified, an agency is required to renew their certification, biannually in even years, with the submission of another certification application.
Certification makes victim serving agencies eligible to apply for 5% funds within their local counties. Any victim serving agency wishing to receive victim services funding through CJCC also must complete the application; be granted certification; complete annual reports; and maintain approved services throughout the new certification period expiring April 30, 2024, regardless of actual receipt of 5% funds.
New applications may be submitted during the initial application period, February to mid-March in even-numbered years, as well as in March, July, and November of any year. Outside of the initial application period, new applicants will have 30 days to complete their application by submitting supporting documentation. If the application is not complete by the end of the 30 days, the applicant will have to begin the process again by requesting access to a new application. The assigned username and password will remain the same.
