Victim Compensation Division


The Victim Compensation Division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, (hereinafter referred to as “The Division”) provides a variety of programs geared toward helping victims of violent crimes and those who assist them. Program funding is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, a percentage of court fees collected statewide, work release money, restitution payments, 75% of punitive damages awarded in Indiana, and state appropriations. The Indiana General Assembly enacted into law a program to provide financial assistance for victims of violent crime. The Division has two programs to provide that assistance, The Violent Crime Victim Compensation Program, and the Sexual Assault Reimbursement Program. The Violent Crime Victim Compensation Program allows victims of a violent crime to apply for reimbursement of medical and other eligible expenses they have incurred as a result of a violent crime. The Sexual Assault Reimbursement Program allows hospitals and sexual assault treatment centers to apply for reimbursement for their cost of performing forensic medical exams.
