Does it look bad for my agency if we have high numbers of partially served and/or not served victims/survivors?
Not at all. By reporting victims as partially served or not served, you are helping OVW and policymakers understand that the scope and burden of violence stretches far beyond what VAWA is able to fund. We encourage grantees to carefully track and report instances of partial service or non-service and to use the narrative questions to provide detail to demonstrate the additional needs that exist in your community. Our aim is to have accurate data, and partial and not served numbers are just as important as served numbers for creating a comprehensive picture of the impact of grant funds.
