The California Victim compensation board

The California Victim Compensation Board is a state program dedicated to providing reimbursement for many crime-related expenses to eligible victims who suffer physical injury or the threat of physical injury as a direct result of a violent crime. CalVCB funding comes from restitution paid by criminal offenders through fines, orders, penalty assessments and federal funds.

 Placer County is fortunate to have 3 dedicated CalVCB Claims Specialists who work closely with the Victim Advocates in the District Attorney’s Office to process applications and bills for crime-related expenses.  Having a dedicated claims team allows for increased access to services for victims of eligible crime types.  

In Fiscal Year 2020, The Placer County Claims Team processed over 1,000 applications for victims in Placer County and CalVCB paid over $1.6 million dollars in total benefits.
