Crime Victim Compensation

Victim Compensation is a program to relieve crime victims of some of the financial stress they experience when victimized. The State of Arizona collects fines from convicted felons to fund the Victim Compensation program. The Navajo County Victim Compensation Board, composed of five local volunteers, reviews submitted claims and disburses available funds to victims who are eligible under the State Program rules.

(crime-related expenses)

  • Medical costs (including traditional healing)
  • Mental health counseling
  • Funeral costs (up to $10,000.00)
  • Wage loss
  • Crime scene clean-up (up to $2,000.00)
  • Travel to and from medical and counseling appointments (up to $2,000.00)

Claim maximum is $25,000
