The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Fund was established by Congress in 1984 in order to provide federal support to state and local programs that assist victims of crime. This Public Law, amending the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) of 1984, is "An Act [t]o deposit certain funds into the Crime Victims Fund, to waive matching requirements, and for other purposes." The amendments in this Public Law provide more flexibility in award calculations as well as allow waivers during times of declared states of national emergency.
