Crime Victims Compensation
New York State’s Crime Victims Board provides compensation to innocent victims for losses they incurred as a result of a crime. All domestic violence victims are by definition crime victims, and many need financial help to recover health or property destroyed by abusers.
Our Crime Victims Program provides information about Crime Victims Compensation and helps victims file and follow up on claims.
