A congressional appropriations committee proposed for the first time on June 11, 2015 to use the VOCA funds for programs that are not originally authorized under the VOCA statute. This is listed below. This is because in year 2000, there was a cap put on how much VOCA funds were dispersed yearly no matter how much was contributed. Since, there has been a surplus that is now proposed to be released.
