Treasury Offset Program

The Treasury Offset Program (TOP) will support both the efforts of U.S. Attorneys to collect money owed to the Federal Government and victims as the result of court-ordered criminal monetary impositions and the addition of criminal debts to the program. The Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) has proposed that the Treasury Clerk's offices would hold disbursements received into TOP for 6 months. Claims filed during this period would be paid from undisbursed TOP funds. Successful claims filed after the 6-month period would be paid with the funds provided by OVC. Currently, three districts are ready to include criminal debts in TOP. These districts will serve as pilot test districts. If successful, some 34 districts will be added during the next fiscal year.
