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.

This includes:
1. Victim serving organizations who subgrantees of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC).
2. Any victim serving organization who is seeking eligibility to apply to receive 5% funds.

Once certified, an agency is required to renew their certification, biannually in even years, with the submission of another certification application.

Certification permits agencies to apply for victim services funding through the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. Any local agencies wishing to receive victim services funding through VOCA, VAWA, or SASP must complete the application, be granted certification and maintain approved services throughout the new certification period expiring April 30, 2022.
