Description
States have received federal financial assistance through the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) to support victim assistance and victim compensation programs since 1986. These programs currently administer approximately $584 million in grant funding. In December, 2014 President Obama raised the VOCA funding from $745 million to approximately $2,361 billion. This tripled the current funding level. It becomes imperative we continue to provide intensive training and information on proper grant administration and monitoring and the effective use of funds to assist the administrators with a larger budget and possibly an increase in staff.
