Funding Amount:

1. Individual Projects (as defined under subtypes): up to $300,000 for the entire 36 months.
2. Consortia Projects (as defined under subtypes):

  • A. Two to Four institutions: up to $550,000 for the entire 36 months; or

Applicants may only submit one proposal per category (individual or consortium project). In addition, for purposes of the campus program, satellite or branch campuses are not considered separate institutions. Therefore, an institution with multiple satellite or branch locations should not apply as a consortium project.

The Campus Program encourages a comprehensive coordinated community approach that enhances victim safety, provides services for victims, and supports efforts to hold offenders accountable. The funding supports activities that develop and strengthen trauma informed victim services and strategies to prevent, investigate, and respond to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Developing campus-wide coordinated responses involving campus victim service providers, law enforcement/campus safety officers, health providers, housing officials, administrators, student leaders, faith-based leaders, representatives from student organizations, and disciplinary board members is critical. To be effective, campus responses must also link to local off-campus criminal justice agencies and service providers, including local law enforcement agencies, prosecutors’ offices, courts, and nonprofit, nongovernmental victim advocacy and victim services organizations. Campuses are encouraged to create or revitalize large-scale efforts that treat sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking as serious offenses by adopting effective, culturally relevant policies and protocols, developing victim services and advocacy programs, and implementing effective prevention approaches. Colleges and universities should demonstrate to every student that these crimes will not be tolerated, that perpetrators will face serious consequences, and that holistic services are available for all victims. 2 For additional information on the Campus Program, including what past Campus Program grantees have accomplished with their grant funds and to view the Campus Program performance measures and grantee-reported data, see http://muskie.usm.maine.edu/vawamei/campusgraphs.htm.
