What is Reparations?

Reparations (PDF) is money available to assist victims with certain costs incurred as a result of a crime, such as:

  • Counseling costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Medical care
  • Substitute child care

Property damage or loss is not covered. Most claims must be filed within three years of the incident. Victims of violent crimes should file a claim for reparations even if they are also requesting restitution. It is not guaranteed the offender will pay restitution and not all victims are eligible for reparations. Form more information, contact the Victim Witness office.
