Crime Victim Compensation Program
If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury from a violent crime, the Crime Victim Compensation Program may be able to help. The Compensation Program helps victims with certain out-of-pocket expenses related to injuries from violent crime and is funded entirely by fines and penalties paid by criminals (not by taxpayers).
The program pays for crime-related expenses such as medical care, counseling, lost wages, and funeral expenses (when costs are not covered by insurance or other sources). The program can also pay for crime-scene clean-up, replacement of clothing held as evidence, replacement of security items, child or dependent care, and travel.
The application process is simple. Applications are accepted through the mail or by telephone. The Crime Victim Compensation Program cannot erase the painful memories of a crime, but hopefully it can help a crime victims recovery and ease the financial burden caused by the crime.

Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence
Incorporated in 1985, the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) is a state level nonprofit organization that has proven its capacity as a state and national resource in responding to the needs of battered women and children. Currently, there are 28 direct service domestic violence member programs across the state. ICADV staff provide training, counseling, community outreach, program management and technical support for the member programs, professionals, and the community. ICADV administers seven programs, including but not limited to State Certification of Domestic Violence Programs and Advocates, Legal Assistance to Victims, and a statewide rural AmeriCorps program.
The Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence seeks to engage all people in a movement to change the social and political systems that perpetuate violence against women. We do this through education, advocacy and quality victim services.
