FY2022 Show Up, Stand Out (SUSO) Program Community-Based Truancy Reduction Grant 

The Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants (OVSJG) mission is to develop, fund, and coordinate programs that improve public safety; enhance the administration of justice; and create systems of care for crime victims, youth, and their families in the District. In order to accomplish its mission, OVSJG coordinates and funds community-based and District agency services for victims of crime and returning citizens. Additionally, OVSJG manages efforts that aim to reduce truancy in the District's public and charter schools, and supports juvenile diversion, mentoring, and gang intervention efforts. OVSJG is the State-Administering Agency (SAA) responsible for the direction of systemic criminal justice planning, coordination, management, research, training, and technical assistance. OVSJG also provides policy making expertise, advice, and counsel to the Executive Office of the Mayor on the role of victims and offenders in the criminal justice system, and evidence-based practices to respond to, intervene in, and prevent violence.

In FY22, OVSJG’s Request for Applications (RFA) is for programs centered on addressing truancy in elementary and middle schools through the District’s Show Up, Stand Out (SUSO) program.[1] Eligible applicants can propose to serve elementary and/or middle schools, but are not required to serve both. Additionally, applicants can propose to serve only one middle school. Only qualified non-governmental organizations with prior experience working with DC’s child welfare, youth services, family services, mental health, substance abuse, and/or educational agency professionals are eligible and invited to submit an application. This RFA is released exclusively to execute the Show Up, Stand Out mission and program model with local funds to target elementary and middle school students. The primary target population will be students that were chronically truant[2] during the previous school year (SY20-21) and the secondary target population will be students “at-risk”[3] of becoming truant that have three consecutive to nine unexcused absences with a history of truancy (accumulated five unexcused absences in SY20-21) and their families in Wards 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. For this proposal, applicants may serve students in more than one Ward to meet program capacity for the elementary and middle school models.

 All submissions are due by May 28, 2021 at 11:59pm ET via ZoomGrants TM.  For more information contact the Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants at (202) 727-0605 or via  e-mail [email protected] with the words “FY22 SUSO RFA” in the subject line
