The Office of Victim and Survivor Rights and Services (OVSRS) has funds available through a federal grant which allows for reimbursement for costs associated with travel to a parole proceeding for victims and victims next of kin.

We recommend booking travel directly through hotel or airline companies, not third party vendors. Receipts from third party vendors (Orbitz, Expedia, etc.) can not be accepted for travel reimbursement. Travelers using a third party vendor must do the following in order to receive reimbursement:
1. Verify with the on-line third party vendor and the lodging establishment, before you book your travel, that you will receive receipts showing, in detail:
2. Provide a valid receipt from the on-line third party vendor and a valid receipt from the hotel where you stayed and include those with your Travel Expense Claim (TEC) for reimbursement.

The Federal grant used for the reimbursement is awarded by fiscal year. Please turn your claim in promptly after attending the parole proceeding to ensure payment.
