We want to do a major shout out the folks involved with VOCA!
The Crime Victims Fund (the Fund), established by the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA), is a major funding source for victim services throughout the Nation. Millions of dollars have been deposited into the 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, Fund dollars have always come from offenders convicted of federal crimes, not from taxpayers.
Thanks to this fund and to the people who have worked so hard to advocate for Victims of Crime on the federal level- we at Victim Witness Services want to say THANK YOU! Thanks to VOCA, we have been able to expand services! We now have an office in Page, more physical space in Flagstaff, two new vehicles to transport clients and more staff to handle the increase in capacity.
