Victims of Crime Grant Program

The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) of 1984 provides federal financial assistance to states for the purpose of compensating and assisting victims of crime, as well as expanding and enhancing direct services. Priority program areas under VOCA are: Sexual Assault Victims, Spousal Abuse Victims, Child Abuse and Neglect Victims, and Previously Underserved Victims of Violent Crime. VOCA grants are awarded to both private nonprofit and public agencies.  All projects are required to utilize volunteers and to assist victims in applying for victims' compensation benefits. All grants are reviewed on a competitive basis.  Currently, continuation grants are provided first priority. Matching requirement for projects is 80 percent federal and 20 percent in-kind or cash.
