Congressional District
Funding First Awarded

Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $159,987)

The National Survey of Victim Service Providers (NSVSP) aims to provide comprehensive information about what services are being provided to crime victims, who is being served, and what gaps in service delivery may exist. The NCVSP will also survey victim service providers across all levels of the criminal justice system about the roles providers play in the criminal justice process. Extending upon work already underway, this award will provide supplemental funding to field the NSVSP. The specific tasks to be covered under this award include: (1) conduct a small (n = 9 VSPs) test to examine the usability of the NSVSP instrument and make modifications to the NSVSP instrument programming based on the results of the testing; (2) administer the NSVSP to a sample of VSPs that supports state-level estimates in addition to national estimates, specifically estimates in the 4 census regions and in the 14 states with the most VSPs; and (3) extend the data collection period by 1 month for a total of 5 months in the field.
