Bags are provided to agencies serving innocent victims of crime. Eligible agencies include hospitals and medical providers, rape crisis and domestic violence shelters and programs, and state, municipal and campus law enforcement. Other interested parties may email firstname.lastname@example.org for a determination of eligibility.
Bags are provided to agencies at no cost. The contents of the bag are funded via a Victims of Crime Act grant through the NYS Office of Victim Services. Bags may not be given out as "swag" or other gifts but must only be used for their intended purpose, to assist victims and survivors of crime in New York State.
Pursuant to the terms of the federal grant, agencies providing bags to innocent victims of crime must report back top-level data with no personally identifiable information. Data will be collected through a form provided to agencies by grant staff. Data is provided in a cumulative fashion to help ensure privacy and confidentiality of bag recipients, while meeting the terms of the federal grant.
Agencies will not have to report the characteristics of a single bag recipient, but will answer a series of questions collecting high-level cumulative data about all bag recipients during a time period.
Questions may be addressed to email@example.com.
