Are you a victim of a reported crime? Financial assistance may be available to pay for your crime related losses.
The Victims Compensation Program provides limited financial assistance to victims of crime. The financial loss has to be the direct result of the crime, and is not reimbursable through other sources, such as insurance.
The Vermont Victims Compensation Program is established in state statute, which can be found at 13 V.S.A. § Chapter 167. Other statutes that relate to the Victims Compensation Program are the Public Records Law 1 V.S.A. § 317(c)(41) and the Restitution statute found at 13 V.S.A. § 7043 (c)(2) and (3).
