This fund supports 104 local victim/witness programs mandated to serve the victims and witnesses of all crimes. The majority of these programs are located in the offices of the Commonwealth's Attorneys. The fund is also supported with a three-dollar court charge collected from all convicted offenders and from federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funds.)
