OVC FY 2022 Invited to Apply - Administrative Funding Adjustment to Previously Funded FY2020 VOCA Victim Compensation

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust


between law enforcement and the community.

Under this solicitation, OVC will support VOCA Victim Compensation Formula Programs that provide crucial financial assistance to hundreds of thousands of crime victims each year.

Compensation is extremely vital to victims who face enormous financial setbacks from medical fees, lost income, dependent care, funeral expenses, relocation expenses, and other costs.

OVC will award each eligible state victim compensation program an annual grant equal to 75 percent of the amount the program awarded in state-funded victim compensation payments during the fiscal year 2 years prior to the present fiscal year, other than amounts awarded for property damage.

Statutory Authority:
This grant program is authorized and funded by the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) of 1984 (34 U.S.C.

§ 20102).
