Anyone can become a victim of violent crime, anytime, anywhere.

The Utah Office for Victims of Crime (UOVC) provides financial compensation for victims of crime, administers and monitors Victim of Crime Act Compensation and Assistance grants and Violence Against Women grants, networks victim services across the state, provides enhanced training, and provides staff support to the Utah Council on Victims of Crime.

Victim Compensation

CVR provides financial assistance to victims who have suffered financial loss, physical injuries and emotional trauma as a result of a violent crime. Funding of the program comes from criminal offenders through surcharges and fines.

Victim Assistance Grants

Federal VOCA, VAWA and SASP grant funds assist agencies throughout the State to enhance and expand crime victim services. Public and private non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for these funds which are allocated through an annual Request for Proposal process.

UCVC provides training to victims’ programs, promotes legisation to improve the status of victims and monitors concerns about violations of victims’ rights.
