Hate Crime Victim Assistance Act of 2017

This bill amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 to establish new Department of Justice (DOJ) grant programs: (1) for state and local governments, in partnership with stakeholders, service providers, and nonprofit entities, to establish and operate hate crime information and assistance websites and to establish or expand hate crime hotlines; and (2) for state and local law enforcement entities to establish education and training programs on solving and preventing hate crimes and establishing dialogues with members of at-risk groups.

Additionally, the bill directs DOJ to establish, in the Office of Victims of Crime, a grant program to support efforts by local organizations to establish or expand programs and activities that serve victims of hate crimes.
