The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission's (ACJC) Crime Victim Services area oversees and administers two key programs: the Crime Victim Compensation and the Crime Victim Assistance programs. The Crime Victim Assistance program provides grants to private non-profit or government agencies that deliver direct services to crime victims. The Crime Victim Compensation program is administered through ACJC but resides locally in each of Arizona's 15 county attorney's offices.
If you have been a victim of crime, there may be assistance available in your community. Arizona provides financial assistance to victims of crime for out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a direct result of the crime.
Victim Compensation may help pay for out-of-pocket expenses including: medical costs, funeral expenses, mental health counseling, wage loss, transportation costs, and crime scene cleanup.
