Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $300,000)

The Victim Reunification Travel (VRT) Program serves crime victims by working to return children from overseas who are victims of international parental kidnapping. The VRT Program assists in the recovery of these children from abroad by providing financial assistance to eligible parents. This assistance may support the international travel of eligible "left-behind parent(s)" or "applicant parent(s)" to participate in the foreign country's court proceedings and the consultation and travel expenses of appropriate mental health professionals who are engaged to facilitate the reunification process and reduce the abducted child's trauma.
