Understanding the VOCA Rule Change: A New Opportunity to Help Survivors of Sexual Abuse in Detention (2017)

This webinar outlines the 2016 VOCA rule change allowing rape crisis centers to use VOCA assistance funds to serve victims who are incarcerated. The change also enables corrections agencies working to comply with the Prison Rape Elimination Act to call on rape crisis centers to be an additional source of service and support for victims.
