VOCA Onetime Expenses Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)


This funding announcement is for FFY2015 VOCA funds. These funds must be spent no later than September 30, 2018.  This funding opportunity is a result of the large amount of subrecipient turnback from the 2015 VOCA Funds.  Although the increase in our 2015 Federal VOCA Grant allowed us to award more grants statewide, it also meant that more turnback was expected.  Of the $4 million in 2015 turnback, $2.5 million will be available for the VOCA one-time projects/expenses.
