Victim Services
Compensation Program

The victim compensation program provides financial assistance to victims of crime or others who may have experienced a financial loss as a direct result of a crime. The program covers expenses of physical harm, mental distress, and economic loss directly resulting from victimization. Eligibility to receive benefits from the program does not require the apprehension or conviction of an offender, and the compensation program is always the payer of last resort. All other sources of economic recovery must be exhausted before compensation benefits can be paid.

While ACJC is responsible for administering the program at the state level, claims are processed at the county level. Each county program has a compensation coordinator, who is responsible for investigating claims and collect supporting documentation. This begins with a completed application, police reports, and any bills or invoices that victims or claimants are requesting be paid by the program.

After the background work is completed, the county coordinator prepares for and conducts compensation board meetings. Compensation board meetings are where decisions are made on whether or not to pay out compensation funds to victims of crime. The compensation coordinator serves as a point of contact for victims, claimants, members of the community, or victim services personnel that would like more information about the victim compensation program.

For further information or specific questions relating to claim submission, please call the Crime Victim Compensation Program for the county where the crime occurred. To submit an application online APPLY HERE.
