The State of Idaho is experiencing delays in issuing payment for services under the Crime Victims Compensation Program due to the implementation of a new statewide accounting and payment data system. Your patience is appreciated.
The program works with victims and family members to ensure they understand the benefits available to them and to assist them in accessing the necessary treatment or services they need.
The program believes that offenders should be held accountable for costs associated with their criminal activity, and actively pursues reimbursement for crime related costs from offenders through restitution and any other source of payment.
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.
2024 Administrative Rulemaking
In accordance with Executive Order 2020-01: Zero-Based Regulation, the Industrial Commission is striving to prevent the accumulation of costly, ineffective, and outdated regulations and reduce regulatory burden to achieve a more efficient operation of government. Currently, the Industrial Commission is reexamining the Crime Victims Compensation; IDAPA 17.10.01 – Administrative Rules Under the Crime Victims Compensation Act. These rules have not been reviewed since 2010, and the Commission recognizes the need for change and encourages stakeholder input.
As part of the Industrial Commission’s rulemaking process, the Commission will be hosting multiple focus groups, also known as negotiated rulemaking, throughout the state to allow the opportunity for Crime Victim Compensation Program (CVCP) stakeholders to share their feedback regarding the proposed rule changes.
