Welcome to the Governor's Grants Program!

Welcome to the home of the Governor's Grants Program.  This website should provide for better communication and information between our staff and prospective and current Subgrantees.  Additionally, you will find information concerning our new training initiatives and programs.  Please make sure to look around the website and familiarize yourself with the new navigation.  Of course we are still glad to offer our assistance should you need it.



Grant funds are available from the Federal Victim Assistance of Crime Act (VOCA) Victim Assistance grant program for the funding period of October 1, 2019, through September 30, 2020, to eligible applicants.  The purpose of this grant program is to fund public agencies, American Indian tribe/organizations,  nonprofit, community, and faith-based organizations, including underserved and culturally specific populations providing direct assistance to crime victims.   For the purpose of these grant program guidelines, direct services are defined as those efforts that (1) respond to the emotional and physical needs of crime victims; (2) assist primary and secondary victims of crime to stabilize their lives after a victimization; (3) assist victims to understand and participate in the criminal justice system; and (4) provide victims of crime with a measure of safety such as boarding up broken windows and replacing or repairing locks.  A crime victim is a person who has suffered physical, sexual, financial, or emotional harm as a result of the commission of a crime.

All grant applications must be submitted via the Governor’s Grant Portal by 11:59 p.m., September 24, 2019.  To quickly locate this specific grant opportunity in the Grant Portal, use “CRIME VICTIM” for the keywords in your search or access the 2020 VOCA Solicitation at www.grants.ks.gov/opportunities/federal-victims-of-crime-act-victim-assistance-grant-(voca).  Please contact the Kansas Governor’s Grants Program at 785-291-3205 with questions.
