Annotation: This report from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) presents an overview of OVC’s programs and services for fiscal years 2009 and 2010.
Abstract: Highlights from this report detailing the programs and services provided by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) during fiscal years 2009 and 2010 include the following: deposits to the Crime Victims Fund totaled $1.7 billion and $2.4 billion, respectively; approximately $1.2 billion was used to support victim compensation and assistance to over 7 million victims of crime; in 2010, OVC provided funding for community-based programs under the U.S. Attorney General’s Defending Childhood Initiative; and in 2009 and 2010, OVC provided funding to programs aimed at reaching underserved or unserved victims of enduring crimes, such as evidence-based, culturally relevant services for tribal victims of sexual assault. Additional OVC efforts include the establishment of collaborative, multidisciplinary partnerships to build expertise and leverage existing resources; developing programs and resources for victims of new types of crime, such as human trafficking and identity theft; and responding to new forms of victimization such as terrorism and online harassment and bullying. This report contains four chapters that detail the work of OVC for fiscal years 2009-2010. Chapter 1 presents information on the work of the Crime Victims Fund during FY 2009-2010, its primary sources of revenue, and how the fund supports victim services. Chapter 2 examines the ongoing challenges of victims of crime, and chapter 3 examines emerging challenges in victim services. Chapter 4 examines OVC’s efforts to increase public awareness of victims’ rights’ and services as well as training and technical resources available to victim service professionals. Appendixes
