The National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network (NITVAN) seeks to expand and improve the outreach and capacity of victim service programs to better address the rights and needs of victims of identity theft nationwide by building the field’s capacity to provide a coordinated response to the problem. With assistance from the National Network, new coalitions have formed across the country. The coalitions are engaged in creating, enhancing, and delivering identity theft victim assistance training and outreach to improve the ability of the coalition members to provide direct victim assistance services.
NITVAN was launched in 2010 with funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims of Crime, through the Crime Victims Fund. This unique fund is financed by fines and penalties paid by convicted federal offenders, not from tax dollars.
