OVERVIEW

The VOCA Formula Grant Program, created under the 1984 Victims of Crime Act, provides federal funding to support victim assistance and compensation programs, to provide training for diverse professionals who work with victims, to develop projects to enhance victims’ rights and services, and to undertake public education and awareness activities on behalf of crime victims. The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) was created by the U.S. Department of Justice in 1983 and formally established by Congress in 1988 through an amendment to the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA). OVC provides federal funds to support victim assistance and compensation programs around the country. The Crime Victims’ Fund is the source of funding for these programs. Millions of dollars are deposited into the Crime Victims’ Fund annually from criminal fines, forfeited bail bonds, penalties, and special assessments collected by U.S. Attorneys' Offices, federal U.S. courts, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. To date, Crime Victims’ Fund dollars have always come from offenders convicted of federal crimes, not from taxpayers.

The amount of money deposited into the Fund has fluctuated from year to year. In FY 2000, Congress placed a cap on the Crime Victims’ Fund limiting the total amount of dollars that can be awarded each year to insure a steady flow of funding through years with high and low collections. However, in recent years annual deposits to the Fund have soared. For example, in FY 2012 annual deposits totaled $2.795 billion. Additionally, over the last three years annual deposits to the Fund have averaged $2.6 billion. Consequently the Fund balance currently exceeds $12 billion. The significant unmet needs of crime victims across the country and the substantial and growing balance in the Fund help to explain recent Congressional action contained in the Appropriations Act of 2015 and 2016. Specifically, a provision of this Act raises the Fund cap from $745 million to $2.361 billion. The actual amount of funding available for VOCA grant programs is determined each year during the appropriations process.
