Our Programs

The Georgia Crime Victims Compensation Program was created to help victims of violent crimes cover expenses for medical, mental health counseling, funeral and crime scene sanitization expenses, as well as loss of income or support.

Over time, our programs have grown to meet the needs of victims, such as accessing unclaimed court ordered restitution from an offender, supporting the placement of a memorial for a loved one killed by an impaired driver and more.

Crime victims can apply directly for Victims Comp, Officers Initiative, DUI Memorial Sign and Unclaimed Restitution Programs. Providers apply on behalf of victims to the Forensic Interview Program and the Forensic Medical Examination Program.
