Hope's Door: Call to Action to Help the National Network to End Domestic Violence

Deposits into the Crime Victims Fund (CVF) remain lower than anticipated, and the $1.2 billion proposed by the House, the Senate, and in the President’s Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) budget for the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) is a devastating $700 million cut. At this proposed funding level, thousands of victim service providers across the nation will be forced to lay off staff, cut programs, or—even worse—shut their doors. Join us in urging your Members of Congress to act now and share with them what potential cuts to VOCA will mean for programs and survivors.
