More about the Victims Services Division
The entire Victims Services Division is operated without state appropriations. Both administrative costs and direct payments to victims and sub-grantees were paid primarily through fines and penalty assessments placed on state and federal offenders. The remaining costs were paid from federal grant funding.
The Victims Services Division staff continues to participate in national training, meetings and debates regarding victims’ assistance and compensation. In addition, the staff shares knowledge with others state programs by serving on the Board of Directors for both the National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards and the National Association of Victims Assistance Administrators.
