National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network
The National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network (NITVAN) is a network of coalitions across the country, 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.
Whether you are interested in starting a coalition or strengthening your existing services, use the Toolkit for Professionals to improve and expand services to identity theft victims, start a collaborative group in your area, as well as access downloadable, ready-to-customize training materials and brochures.
