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.
Ensure eligible victims are provided appropriate financial assistance to aid in recovery from the traumatic effects of crime.
Meet the needs of victims by progressively, compassionately, and effectively easing the impact of crime.
