The goal of this solicitation is to update and expand OVC's resources to support crime victims with disabilities, particularly the following two resources: Victims with Disabilities: Collaborative, Multidisciplinary First Response DVD and Trainers Guide (published in 2009 and revised in 2011) and Victims with Disabilities: The Forensic Interview DVD and Trainer's Guide (published 2007 and revised in 2011). Since these documents were first published, expansive work has been done on disabilities and the technology landscape of victimization has rapidly changed. In addition, there is a need for guidance on making services accessible and appropriate to crime victims with disabilities throughout the process from first response and forensic interviewing to healing.
