National Association of Crime Victims Compensation Boards Law and Legal Definition

The National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards is a network of professionals in state and local government crime victim compensation programs. These professionals work together to give financial assistance for victims of violent crime.

The association connects managers, staff, and Board members in states and jurisdictions across the U.S. to share information, ideas, and strategies for improving the administration of crime victim compensation programs, and for serving victims and their families in a better manner.

Additionally, the association provides information to victims, the advocates who work on their behalf, interested members of allied professions, and the public. Compensation programs rely on everyone who works with victims to help them access opportunities for financial assistance.
