Iowa Department of Justice Office of the Attorney General Seal

Providing services and assistance to victims of violent crimes, including helping victims with certain out-of-pocket expenses related to injuries from violent crime.  It is funded entirely by fines and penalties paid by criminals (not by taxpayers).

The program pays for crime-related expenses such as medical care, counseling, lost wages, and funeral expenses (when costs are not covered by insurance or other sources).  The program can also pay for crime-scene clean-up, replacement of clothing held as evidence, replacement of security items, child or dependent care, housing/shelter expenses, relocation expenses and travel.
