Arrangement of the Collection

Collection is arranged by grant number, which is found in the upper left hand corner of the 1996 grants, and on the form for the 1997 grants.

Scope and Content

Grant applications cover issues in the 18th Judicial District, which includes Douglas County. Not all applications pertain to Douglas County, but include the Denver Metro Area. Some applications appear to be missing. Topics included in the grant applications: afterschool programs, child abuse, domestic violence, and violence against the elderly. Local History Staff removed names of clients not removed by the grantee institution before making the collection available to the public.

In 1984 the Colorado General Assembly approved legislation to establish the Assistance to Victims of and Witness to Crimes and Aid to Law Enforcement Act (VALE). The Act provides for the existence of a five-member board, appointed by the Chief Judge, in each judicial district, with each local board accepting applications and making decisions regarding the use of VALE funds in that judicial district. The 18th Judicial District includes the counties of Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln.


Biography / History

The combination of explosive growth in the 1980s and 1990s and a higher percentage of incidences reported contributed to the development of many victim assistance groups in the 1990s.
