The Office of Victim Services (OVS) collaborates with victim assistance professionals, criminal justice personnel, law enforcement, and medical, mental health, funeral, and other community providers to ensure:
Connecticut will be a state where all victims of crime are treated with respect and fairness and receive comprehensive, coordinated, and victim‑centered services.
This section of the OVS Website provides information on funding sources, education, and collaborative opportunities for allied partners to assist in their response to crime victims and survivors.
All services provided with contracted funds are at no cost to crime victims. If your organization is interested in learning more about serving as an OVS funded contractor, please email Program Manager James Morgan at James.Morgan@jud.ct.gov.
Funds are awarded through the Request for Proposal process. Direct service contracts are for a period of 3 years with additional extensions possible depending on the amount of federal funds awarded by OVC and the state funds appropriated by the Connecticut Legislature. Contracts run on the state fiscal year of July 1 to June 30.
