Introduction The Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) can help pay unreimbursed expenses that result when a violent crime occurs. Victims of crime who have been injured or have been threatened with injury may be eligible for help from CalVCP with costs including medical and dental treatment, mental health services, funeral and burial expenses, home security, residential crime scene cleanup and emergency relocation. If a person is disabled as a result of the crime, CalVCB also assists with wage loss, dependent support loss, job retraining and home or vehicle modifications. Local county victim advocates can help with the process and with urgent needs such a moving expenses – first and last month's rent, deposits and temporary lodging – if a victim needs to relocate for their own safety or emotional well-being.
