Common Outcome Measures Report
Since January 2006, the CVSD has required victim services providers receiving CVSD-administered grants to collect and report quarterly data on three outcome measures. All grantees use a single outcome measure and two additional measures specific to the services they provide. CVSD directs that grantees determine which clients are appropriate to be surveyed and collect feedback from at least 10 percent. The reports below analyze the data collected for a year and compare it to the data collected the prior two years.
