DOJ/OJP RIN: 1121-AA68 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Crime Victim Compensation Program Regulations 
Abstract: The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Crime Victim Compensation Program regulations provide the parameters under which State agencies may use these funds to reimburse crime victims directly for expenses related to crime. Expenses that must be covered are lost wages, medical and mental health costs, and funeral and burial costs. States, at their discretion, may cover loss of support, crime scene cleanup, and other such expenses. VOCA funds are obtained from the Crime Victims Fund in the U.S. Treasury, which consists of fines, fees, and bond forfeitures from Federal offenders.

This rulemaking has been transferred to RIN 1121-AA68 because the computer system used by the Regulatory Information Service Center (RISC) to compile the Unified Agenda no longer supports "parent" and "child" RINs.
