Victim compensation is financial assistance paid to eligible victims for some of their non-reimbursed expenses incurred as a direct result of a violent crime perpetrated against them. While no amount of money can fully compensate victims for their trauma and grief, financial assistance can be critical in helping victims restore the stability and dignity of their lives and the lives of their families.
