Compensation of victims of crime

This compensation consists of payments to crime victims and to vendors on behalf of crime victims. Currently, about three-fourths of the states have the programs for these payments.

The national estimate of total payments is allocated to states in proportion to information assembled by the Crime Victims Board of the New York state Executive Department. The county allocator is the geographic distribution of the civilian population.
