The Office of Victims Services (OVS) utilizes various web-based technologies to assist victim service providers and victims of crime.
Efforts to Outcome (ETO)
Efforts to Outcome is the standardized data collection and reporting technology system with the functionality of an integrated case management system. ETO is required to be used by VOCA funded victim service programs. Robust, yet streamlined collection and reporting of service and outcome data is especially important, when Victim Service agencies are faced with limited budgets and increased public need for service. VOCA funded agencies are required to use either the Case Management version or Aggregate version of ETO through the PCCD Enterprise. VOCA funded agencies who provide RASA and VOJO services can also use ETO Case Management as a tracking tool.
The ETO Team has created recorded mini-trainings on a variety of ETO topics that are available to agencies upon request. To obtain help from PCCD's ETO Team please contact the ETO Resource Email Account at RA-CD-OVS-ETO@pa.gov
Egrants is an online system designed to automate the grants and project management process. It allows applicants to find funding opportunities, apply for grants or projects, and manage grant reporting online. The system also allows the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) staff to review applications, award grants, and manage those grants and projects efficiently and effectively.
