Victim Compensation

Crime can have a devastating and lasting impact on your finances which is why the Crime Victim Compensation Act was written into law in 1982. Crime Victim Compensation provides financial assistance to eligible crime victims to lessen the financial burden placed upon them as a result of a crime.

The Crime Victim Compensation Board of the Eighth Judicial District and staff are dedicated to conducting an open, fair, and equitable application and award process for all compensation requests received. Each board member has experience working with crime victims and is familiar with the impact of crime.

This page is designed to help assist in your understanding of Crime Victim Compensation as well the application process and to provide general information about the program.

If you have specific questions or concerns, please contact:
Candace Smith, CVC Administrator
