Trauma Recovery Center Grant Questions and Answers

July 18, 2014

1) Regarding the penal code requirement in reporting, for individual crime victims that choose not to report the crime, can funding from this contract be used to provide them mental health treatment and other needed services?

The NOFA states the reporting shall include the type of crime by penal code for each client served. The NOFA does not state the individual must report the crime. Expending grant funds to provide mental health services to those clients is permissible.
