PAYMENTta Webinar: OJP, OVC, VOCA, Who?! Everything You Should Know About the Victims of Crime Act of 1984

 

The Victims of Crime Act of 1984, under the Office of Victims of Crime (OVC), was implemented 36 years ago and has been providing victims and victim service programs with funding. Healthcare clinicians who provide victim services often misinterpret the various funding sources and often lack knowledge of where the funding originates to effectively support victims of crime and provide appropriate services, such as sexual assault medical forensic examinations. Participants will report an increase in knowledge of the history and overview of VOCA; differences between crime victim compensation and crime victim assistance, and various intricacies associated with VOCA funding.

 

Speaker: Janelle Melohn, Office of Attorney General of Iowa, Crime Victim Assistance Division
