I am a crime victim, how can I get help?
Help in your area is available from your
State/Local Victim Compensation and Assistance programs
. Assistance may come in the form of financial reimbursement or victim services. Funding support for state assistance and compensation programs comes from the Crime Victims Fund administered by the
Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)
as authorized by the Victim of Crime Act.
Another source of help is your local victim/witness assistance program. You may contact the
helpline by phone at 855–484–2846 or
for a referral in your area.
Find out more in this brochure,
What You Can Do If You Are a Victim of Crime
, which includes a brief overview of OVC, your rights, and where you can get help.
