S 611 National
VOCA Fix to Sustain the Crime Victims Fund Act of 2021
Call Senator Durbin at 202.224.2152 to urge him to pass S 611, the VOCA Fix Act.
Deposits into the Crime Victims Fund have dropped dramatically in the last several years, leading to a substantial cut to the Victims Of Crime Act (VOCA) victim assistance grants. Victims services organizations are facing budget cuts, staff layoffs, and even program closures while demand for victim services is growing. It has been two-and-a-half months since the House overwhelmingly passed the VOCA Fix to Sustain the Crime Victims Fund Act of 2021 to fix the problem. It is time for the Senate to bring the bill to the floor for a vote.
