Member News and Information
The mission of the National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards is to provide leadership, professional development, and collaborative opportunities to our members to strengthen their capacity to improve services to crime victims and survivors. We share a vision of working together so that every victim compensation program is fully funded, optimally staffed, and functioning effectively to help victims cope with the costs of crime.
Our Members-Only section is open to managers, staff and Board members of government crime victim compensation programs. Contact us if you need assistance logging in.
Our National Conference for our members will take place in Portland, Oregon, September 10 -13. Information will be sent to all compensation programs soon on registration and hotel reservation details.
Our latest Crime Victim Compensation Quarterly can be found by clicking here. A look at our Spring Regionals, an update on VOCA funding, and a couple of recent inquiries and answers are included.
Our current featured issue is "What's in a Name?" More information can be found by clicking on the "Members-Only" tab to the upper right, once you've logged in.
Update on VOCA Funding: Congress has set a cap of $730 million for FY 2013 grants. A few more issues need to be worked through, including the application of management and administrative expenses, before the grant process this year will open. The President's recently released budget for FY 2014 proposes a cap of $800 million, with the increase from last year designated for new purposes, such as Vision 21 initiatives and tribal support. The Congress will consider the proposal over the coming months.
