Crime Victims Compensation

A violent crime can have a lasting impact and can bring changes that one might not expect. The Office of the Attorney General led the way for legislation that created the Crime Victims Compensation Act. This law reserved resources to help those who lives were interrupted by a violent crime. This financial assistance could include offsetting costs related to:

  • Accessibility and Usability of Property
  • Crime-Scene Clean Up
  • Funeral/Burial Expenses
  • Loss of Earnings
  • Medical, Hospital and Dental Expenses
  • Mental Health Counseling Expenses
  • Relocation Costs
  • Replacement Costs
  • Tuition Expenses

The Illinois Crime Victims Compensation Program offers reimbursement up to $27,000 ($45,000 for crimes on or after 8/7/22) for expenses incurred by eligible victims as a result of a violent crime.
