About Victim Assistance Centers

Can victims of any crime receive victim compensation assistance or restitution?

Eligibility for victim compensation or restitution varies by state. Generally, anyone who has suffered a crime-related injury or mental trauma may be eligible to request compensation or restitution. In cases of crime-related death, the victim's family may be able to request compensation. In some states, a victim suffering economic losses or damages may also be able to request restitution.

What is the source of funding for victim compensation funds?

Funding for victim compensation funds comes from penalties and fines paid by convicted offenders. Inmates who are earning wages while incarcerated may be required to pay into a victim compensation fund. Private donations may also be made to victim compensation funds.

How are victims protected after an offender is released from prison?

Depending on the type of case, special conditions may be placed on the offender's release from prison. These conditions may involve no-contact provisions or prohibitions against coming within a certain distance of a victim's home. Victims may also receive end of sentence notifications and community release notifications.
