dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract The data collected from service providers receiving funding under the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) through the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Office of Crime Victim Services (OCVS), receive limited attention in terms of quality and completeness, and have been utilized in only narrow capacities to understand the nature and impact of the programs being funded to serve crime victims across Wisconsin. This project provided the opportunity for the development of a partnership project between OCVS as the VOCA Administrator and the Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) in Wisconsin, as a way to better understand the existing VOCA data and utilize it to examine trends and monitor the expenditure of funds across the state. This project also sets the stage for future data collection, analysis, and reporting to enhance the tools and information currently collected by OCVS...Quarterly program reports and OVC PMTs provide a basic picture of the victims being served, but there has not been a mechanism to completely gather all of that information and utilize it for big picture activities. The changes and activities that are planned, as indicated in the Post-Project Plan, will allow OCVS to improve victim service planning on a statewide level by directing funding towards gaps and needs identified. It will also allow OCVS to provide the grant recipients with an overall view or dashboard of the victims they have served over a certain period of time. [CVRL Note: this report is a collaboration between the Wisconsin Bureau of Justice Information and Analysis and the Wisconsin Office of Crime Victim Services (Wisconsin Department of Justice) and the appendices include focus group questions, attendance, and outcomes, and an infographic of anticipated funding allocations by victimization and underserved victim populations and victim demographics and word cloud of the frequency of terms used in grant applications and updates. The partnership is part of the 2017-2018 cohort of the Center for Victim Research's funded collaborations between state Victims of Crime Act offices and Statistical Analysis Centers (VOCA-SAC). Each report includes a final segment discussing the research partnership, the future of the partnership, and how the results will inform stakeholders and practice.] (Author Text) en_US
