Important Message from Crime Victims’ Compensation:

In an effort to better protect the safety and confidentiality of victims and survivors, CVC will now require you to provide the CV number in order to obtain claim information. We will no longer be able to provide these numbers when requested unless you are listed on the application as the advocate or additional contact. If you do not have the CV number you will need to reach out to the victim to obtain it. If you assisted the victim in filling out the application and are listed as the advocate then you will receive the CV number in an email once the application has been imported into our system.

If you have any questions please reach out to Christy Simon: 

Updates from CVC

The CVC application can now be submitted through the CVC Portal using a cell phone. To access it, select the menu button (indicated with three lines) in the top right corner after you sign in to the portal. Select the option to file an application and proceed from there.
