Victims of Crime Act Formula Program (VOCA) grants may be used to provide funding to public agencies and not-for-profit organizations that offer direct services to victims of crime. Priority is given to projects that provide services to victims of child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence.

In addition to these priority categories, the VOCA program funds projects that serve other groups such as victims of burglary or theft, survivors of victims of homicide, victims of drug and alcohol-related crime, elderly victims, and adult survivors of incest. Services to these groups focus on crisis intervention and assistance in obtaining benefits from compensation programs. State agencies, local units of government, and private not-for-profit organizations may apply for these funds.

Interested organizations may learn more about the federal VOCA program at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/ovc/about/victimsfund.html


The 2014 annual Victims of Crime Act program solicitation opens May 1, 2014; applications must be submitted on or before June 16, 2014.  Applicants will be notified of award decisions via U.S. Mail.
