Legal Assistance for Victims

With the sponsorship of the National Institute of Justice (USDOJ), ILJ is partnering with the National Center for Victims of Crime to conduct a three-year study of approximately 180 grantees receiving funds under the Legal Assistance for Victims (LAV) Program to provide civil legal assistance to victims of domestic violence around the country. ILJ will also examine ten jurisdictions which do not receive LAV funds in order to identify the range of civil legal assistance sources otherwise available to these victims. Annual surveys of grantees, process evaluations of 20 grantees, and impact evaluations for eight of the sites are being done."
