Kentucky Claims Commission (formerly the Crime Victims Compensation Program)

The Crime Victims Compensation Board, along with the Board of Claims and the Board of Tax Appeals, has been restructured into one entity: the Kentucky Claims Commission. 

This website will soon be updated to reflect the new structure of the
Kentucky Claims Commission.  

The Kentucky Claims Commission (formerly the Crime Victims Compensation Board) assists more than 1,000 victims of violent crime per year who have no other resources to pay for the medical, funeral, mental health counseling, and dental or corrective lens expenses resulting from the crime.  Assistance can also include lost wages of the victim or loss of support for someone dependent on the victim. When awarded, payments are made directly to service providers or can be reimbursements to victims or claimants.  The Commission's goal is to provide not only the above-mentioned assistance, but also to show empathy and provide caring assistance to crime victims during a particularly traumatic time.

The Commission acts under the authority of KRS Chapter 346 and KAR Title 107. For legal information, contact legal counsel G. Mitchell Mattingly at
