Each grant agreement from CVSD includes specific language around the confidentiality of survivor information. This is a requirement that comes out of federal VAWA statute, which CVSD has adopted across most of our grant funds. Below you will find resources and additional information regarding confidentiality.
CVSD Common Outcome Measures Report
Since January 2006, the Crime Victims’ Services Division of the Oregon Department of Justice (CVSD) has required that approximately 120 victim services providers receiving CVSD-administered grant funds collect and report quarterly on data with regard to three outcome measures. All grantees use a single outcome measure, as well as two additional measures that are specific to the services they provide. CVSD directs that grantees determine which clients are appropriate to be surveyed (e.g., not clients in crisis), and that grantees collect feedback from at least 10% of this group. This report analyzes the data collected for the year from July 2010 through June 2011. It also compares the data with that collected for each of the two prior years.
District/City Attorney Victim Assistance Program Annual Reports
Each program receiving District/City Attorney Based Victim Assistance Program (DA/CA VAP) funds is required by statute to submit an annual report to the Department of Justice, Crime Victims’ Services Division. That information has been compiled for presentation in this report in order to demonstrate the aggregate impact of funds to the programs. The report includes statistical reports, the use of volunteers, summaries of common outcome and crime victims’ rights measures, the impact of honoring victims’ rights, track conference reports, and a list of programs receiving DA/CA VAP Funds.
