Crime Victim's Compensation was established to give crime victims financial assistance for losses suffered as a result of their victimization. If you have been injured, lost a family member as the result of a crime, or in some cases, if your home has been damaged (windows, doors, locks), you may be eligible to receive benefits through the program.
Funds received through the Crime Victim's Compensation Program do not need to be repaid by the victim or his/her family unless additional funds are received for the same losses through a civil judgment, insurance plan, etc.
The Elbert County Victim Assistance Unit works together with the District Attorney's Office to provide information about benefits available through the Crime Victim's Compensation Act. For questions about Victim Compensation eligibility requirements and/or how to receive an application, please contact either the:
