Crime Victim Compensation

If someone has been the victim of a crime and has reported it to law enforcement within 72 hours, they may be eligible for compensation. A victim advocate can assist clients with filing the application to receive this compensation. In order to qualify, a person needs:

  • A completed and signed victim compensation claim application
  • A law enforcement offense report providing evidence of a crime
  • Proof of expenses related to the crime
