State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Circuit
Victim Compensation Program
The State of Florida through the Attorney General's Office has set up a trust fund to offer financial assistance to victims of violent crime who were injured as a result of the crime and are experiencing financial hardship.
Victim Compensation can help pay for medical expenses, funeral expenses, professional counseling, lost wages, loss of support, disability, domestic violence relocation and reimbursement for prescriptions. They do not cover property losses except in the case of elderly or disabled adults.
Applications can be obtained through the Victim Assistance Program. We are available to assist you in completing them.
Once an award has been made by Victim Compensation and a defendant is found guilty of the crime, the defendant is then ordered to reimburse the trust fund.
All applications are investigated by the Attorney General's Office to determine eligibility. Victims must cooperate with prosecution to remain eligible.
