Message From the Director

OVC's Publishing Guidelines for Print and Web Media describe the criteria grantees and contractors must follow when submitting materials to OVC to be published. OVC is committed to producing quality products and welcomes this opportunity to help you develop dynamic and useful products that will both inspire and instruct the victims' rights and services community.

You may have noticed an increased number of products released exclusively on the OVC Web site. The Internet has become an increasingly important way to share information, and OVC has accepted the challenge to communicate effectively in this new environment. This guide, which has been expanded to include tips on preparing information for the Web, will help you—the grantee or contractor—develop and organize text and format the information in a way that expedites the publishing process.

As the federal office responsible for meeting the needs and protecting the rights of our Nation's crime victims, we look forward to working with you to produce products that meet or exceed professional standards of excellence.

John W. Gillis
Director, Office for Victims of Crime
