  Annotation: This report discusses the major programs and activities of the Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) during fiscal years 1999 and 2000 to improve the criminal justice response to victims.
Abstract: Funding for OVC programs comes from fines and penalties paid by Federal criminal offenders in accordance with the 1984 Victims of Crime Act. The first chapter focused on OVC’s leadership in developing and providing effective responses to crime victims worldwide through policy development, program development, and public awareness efforts. Projects included new guidelines for States and the Department of Justice identifying ways to improve victim services at the State and Federal levels, an initiative to address the needs of children who witness violence, and efforts to build capacity at all governmental levels to respond to terrorism and mass violence. The second chapter focused on ways in which OVC works to improve access to victim services, largely through State compensation and assistance formula grant programs, which receive approximately 90 percent of the funds available from the Crime Victims Fund each year. Subsequent chapters focused on OVC’s professional development and training activities; four evaluation efforts focusing on victim service programs and activities; and OVC efforts to facilitate the exchange of victim-related information through the OVC Training and Technical Assistance Center, the OVC Resource Center, and the OVC Web site. The final chapter profiled the 1999 and 2000 recipients of the National Crime Victim Service Awards and the Crime Victims Fund Awards.
