2020 VOCA National Training Conference

Event Dates
Omni William Penn Hotel

Pittsburgh, PA

The VOCA National Training Conference is designed exclusively for VOCA assistance and state compensation administrators, staff and Board members. Every state crime victim compensation program and VOCA assistance grantee is required to send at least one key official to this conference, as a VOCA formula grant special condition. 

The conference is a unique opportunity for all VOCA administrators, managers, staff, and Board members to obtain critical up-to-date information on VOCA funding and ways to improve program and grant management. This joint conference is also an excellent opportunity for you to exchange information, experiences, and ideas with people with similar responsibilities in other states as well as meet with federal officials, your colleagues from other states and allied professions. 

At this time NAVAA is awaiting the final conference approval by the Office of Justice Programs. Although registration is now open we ask that you DO NOT obligate funds or make any non-refundable travel commitments until final approval has been received.

Travel Scholarships

A very limited number of travel scholarships are available to help states send staff to attend the conference.
