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.
