The Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program was established in 1986 to provide assistance to innocent victims of crime for financial losses associated with a crime when other resources are not available to cover those expenses.
The program believes that offenders should be held accountable for costs associated with their criminal activity, and actively pursues restitution for crime-related costs.
The 2010 Legislature has passed HB 508, giving the Program the authority to adopt a fee for service schedule for payments made on behalf of victims for treatment and services. Read more about the medical fee schedule or view a presentation on the schedule.
All payments made by the Crime Victims Compensation Program on behalf of victims through June 30, 2010 will be reduced by 25% due to financial limitations. Click on the appropriate letter below for more information.
In addition to staffing an office full time at 700 S. Clearwater Lane, the Crime Victims Compensation Program has established regular office hours at FACES (417 S. 6th St., Boise, ID) and the Nampa Family Justice Center (1305 3rd St., Nampa, ID).
