New Crime Victims' Compensation (CVC) applications are available for distribution and on the OAG website. After each state legislative session, the Office of the Attorney General and the Crime Victim Services Division review the application form to ensure its compliance with statutory changes.
The requirement that victims and claimants must elect to allow public access to information held by the Office of the Attorney General was eliminated with the passage of HB1042 last session. The effective date of this legislation is Sept 1, 2007. The new Crime Victims' Compensation application reflects this change with the omission of page 6, CONFIDENTIALITY ELECTION BY VICTIM, of the old application. Information about the application that will still be public includes: the name of the victim or claimant, the date of award, and the amount of the award.
