A victim service program created to help crime victims recover financially from the physical and/or emotional injuries caused during a criminal act.
Crime victims can apply for assistance, and if determined to be eligible, the fund can compensate for specific expenses.
* A crime resulting in a victim’s mental or bodily injury, death, or damage to residential property locks, windows or doors. * Victim cooperation with law enforcement officials (e.g. district attorney, police, sheriff). * Law enforcement agency notification within 72 hours after the crime occurred. * Injury or death of victim was not the result of the victim’s involvement in a wrongful act or substantial provocation. * Crime occurred on or after July 1, 1982. * Application for compensation must be submitted within one year from the date of the crime; six months for residential property damage claims. NOTE: The Victim Compensation Board MAY waive some of these requirements for good cause or in the interest of justice.
Applicants can update their contact info, submit additional documentation, and view the status of their application.
