Crime Victims' Compensation Program
The Crime Victims' Compensation (CVC) Program financially assists victims of violent crime in paying for reasonable medical expenses, counseling expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages and loss of support. In the case of death, the Program can help the victim's dependents with loss of support if the victim was gainfully employed. As a payor of last resort, the Program considers out-of-pocket expenses only after all collateral sources have been exhausted. A maximum benefit of $25,000 may be awarded on eligible claims.
Losses not covered by the Program include, but are not limited to: stolen or damaged property; pain and suffering; crime scene clean-up; relocation; house payments; rent; utilities; food and/or clothing costs; tuition reimbursement, monetary losses from investment schemes or identity theft.
