Crime Victim Compensation Program
If you or someone you care about has suffered personal, physical or emotional injury from a violent crime, contact the Crime Victim Compensation Program. The program may help you with certain out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the crime. The program can also help you find other resources to meet your crime related needs. The Crime Victim Compensation Program cannot erase the painful memories of a crime, but it may ease the financial burden caused by the crime.
