Over the past 14 years, the NCVRW Community Awareness Project’s program has supported more than 1,000 community projects to raise general public awareness about victims’ rights and services. Within many of these communities, “traditional” NCVRW events were enhanced by the collaborative partnerships that were formed during the planning phase of each project.

Generally, the types of activities supported with NCVRW CAP funds fall into one or more of the following categories:

a public event at which individual members of the general public physically attend in-person (e.g., candlelight vigils, information, or resource fairs, 5k walk/runs, memorial services); mass media advertising (e.g., newspaper, radio, or television ads, billboards, mass transit or movie theatre ads, including social media); and the production, publication, and distribution of printed awareness materials (e.g., brochures, posters, victims’ rights cards, resource directories).)

Examples of allowable costs include the production and purchase of advertising in print media, radio, television, or outdoor advertising to promote NCVRW events, victims’ rights, and available services; design and printing of promotional materials; support for event speakers; design and printing of posters, invitations, and fliers; and the purchase of supplies and materials used in public awareness events and activities. Salaries, entertainment, and fundraising costs are not eligible for reimbursement.
