    Summary

    The primary goal of this project is to establish a demonstration initiative to develop models for addressing polyvictimization within FJCs or similar co-located victim services and to share information about lessons learned with the field. The demonstration initiative may require the identification of new onsite and/or offsite partners to deliver the full range of services needed. The demonstration initiative will include an initial TA planning phase to develop a comprehensive TA plan for assisting the demonstration sites with strategic planning and project implementation, and a demonstration site implementation phase. Each demonstration site will be required to partner with a local researcher to conduct a site-specific project process evaluation.


    Grantees funded through this solicitation will engage in the following activities in order to meet the program goals and objectives:

    • Purpose Area #1: FJC Polyvictimization Implementation Sites:
      • Work in conjunction with the TA provider and other demonstration sites to develop a model screening tool or set of tools uniquely designed for use by FJCs or other co-located victim services collaboratives for the screening, assessment, and delivery of services needed for clients who have experienced polyvictimization.
      • Complete a strategic planning process for the pilot testing of the polyvictimization screening tool(s) in the participating demonstration site and the expansion of services necessary to holistically serve victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who have experienced polyvictimization, with the guidance of the national TA provider.
      • Identify potential new onsite and/or offsite partners for the planning and implementation phases of the demonstration initiative.
      • Develop new or expand existing MOUs to reflect the roles and responsibilities of partnering organizations in delivering services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who have experience polyvictimization.
      • Work in collaboration with federal, state, and local service providers, as well as community- and faith-based organizations, in the planning and implementation phases of the project.
      • Partner with a research entity to collect data and conduct a process evaluation to meet the stated goals and objectives.
      • Coordinate with OVC and the designated TA provider throughout the implementation of the project.
      • Deliverables include:
        • A model polyvictimization screening tool for use in FJCs and other co-located victims services collaboratives.
        • A strategic plan for the implementation of polyvictimization screening and assessment and for the delivery of services specific to the demonstration site.
        • A new or expanded MOU among all onsite and offsite FJCs or co-located collaborative partners.
        • A final report describing the methodology, findings, and recommendations of the local process evaluation of the project, to be shared with the field. 
    • Purpose Area #2: Technical Assistance Provider:
      • Undertake a comprehensive review of existing screening tools affecting the identification, assessment, and treatment of individuals who have experienced multiple forms of victimization.
      • Work in conjunction with the demonstration sites to develop a model screening tool or set of tools uniquely designed for use by FJCs or other co-located victim service collaboratives for the screening, assessment, and delivery of services needed for clients who have experienced polyvictimization.
      • Pilot test the use of the newly developed polyvictimization screening and assessment tool(s) in the selected demonstration sites.
      • Based on the results of the pilot test, revise the screening tool(s).
      • Develop a plan for the comprehensive delivery of TTA to the demonstration sites using a variety of delivery methods.
      • Plan and deliver at least one all-sites meeting for each year of the demonstration initiative.
      • Provide TTA to the demonstration sites in support of the site-specific strategic planning process.
      • Provide customized TTA for the demonstration initiative via phone, email, web-based communication, and in person.
      • Share emerging information about the demonstration initiative with the field through webinars, conference workshops, blogs, and other communication methods.
      • Develop a final report compiling the lessons learned from the demonstration initiative, including a summary of findings revealed through the local evaluations, to be published by the TA provider for use by the field.
      • Develop a model polyvictimization screening and assessment tool or set of tools for FJCs and other co-located services based on the findings of the demonstration sites and to be disseminated to the field.
      • Deliverables include:
        • A report of existing polyvictimization screening tools that assesses for benefits and drawbacks of the use of the tool in a co-located model setting.
        • A polyvictimization screening tool or set of tools to be pilot tested in FJCs or other colocated victims service collaboratives.
        • A national-scope pilot testing plan for the implementation of the model screening tool(s) within participating sites.
        • A final report summarizing the findings and recommendations of all of the local process evaluations of the project and promoting model policies to be shared with the field.
        • A model polyvictimization screening tool or set of tools available for dissemination to non-participating FJCs and co-located crime victim service collaboratives across the country.

    Additional Information

    OJP considers programs and practices to be evidence-based when their effectiveness has been demonstrated by causal evidence, generally obtained through one or more outcome evaluations. Causal evidence documents a relationship between an activity or intervention (including technology) and its intended outcome, including measuring the direction and size of a change, and the extent to which a change may be attributed to the activity or intervention. Causal evidence depends on the use of scientific methods to rule out, to the extent possible, alternative explanations for the documented change. The strength of causal evidence, based on the factors described above, will influence the degree to which OJP considers a program or practice to be evidence-based.
