Comprehensive Victim Services

The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) crime victim compensation programs are available in every state and territory and reimburse victims for such crime-related expenses as medical costs, mental health counseling, funeral and burial costs, and lost wages or loss of support.

Both U.S. citizens/legal permanent residents and foreign national victims are eligible; however, there are limitations based on residency, reporting of the crime, and time elapsed since the crime occurred, which makes it important to connect with the local VOCA administrator to learn more.
