Sered, Danielle and Bridgette Butler. Vera Institute of Justice.

The report builds on a year of work on the ground learning from victim services providers across the country. The team met with VOCA administrators, listened to crime survivors, and heard from seasoned advocates in the field. The case studies in this report are intended to serve as examples of organizations that stand to benefit most from the increase in funds. The team then outlined a range of challenges and recommendations to help maximize the opportunity at hand.
