Sacramento, Calif., — The California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) today posted a Notice of Funds Available for Trauma Recovery Centers (TRCs) for fiscal years 2021-22 and 2022-23.
TRCs provide trauma-informed mental health treatment and case management to underserved crime victims who may not be eligible for victim compensation or who may be fearful of reporting a crime to law enforcement.
All interested parties must submit a grant application packet by email before 2 p.m. on December 30, 2020. Complete details on eligibility criteria and application instructions can be found on the CalVCB website on the Grant Opportunities page.
Each year, CalVCB awards two-year grants through a competitive application process. Funding comes from the State Restitution Fund and through the Safe Neighborhood and Schools Act (SNSA), which appropriates 10% of the funds saved annually due to reductions in the state prison population to CalVCB for TRC grants.
Currently, CalVCB funds 15 TRCs in counties across California, including Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, and Solano.
