Crime Victims Compensation Fund Program
The board decides compensation claims from victims of violent crime who have no other resources to pay for the medical, funeral, mental health counseling, and dental or corrective lens expenses resulting from the crime. Assistance can also include lost wages of the victim or loss of support for someone dependent on the victim. When awarded, payments are made directly to service providers or can be reimbursements to victims or claimants. The board's goal is to provide not only the above-mentioned assistance, but also to show empathy to crime victims during a particularly traumatic time.
