Help for Victims of the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas Attack
The California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) can help Californians pay bills and expenses resulting from violent crime. Victims of crime who have been injured or have been threatened with injury may be eligible for help.
If you are not a California resident, please see the State of Nevada Victims of Crime Program.
If you or a family member are a California resident and were at the Route 91 Harvest Festival attack on Sunday, October 1, we may be able to help you pay for expenses such as medical bills, funeral expenses, mental health treatment, or lost wages. You may apply for help whether or not you were injured in the attack. Even if you have no expenses today, we encourage you to apply now in case you incur expenses in the future, such as counseling.
Call CalVCB at 1-800-777-9229 for assistance.
This application has two signature pages, one for the California program and one for the Nevada program. When you submit this application to CalVCB, you will be applying to both programs, and CalVCB will work directly with the Nevada compensation program to assist you. You do not need to fill out another application for Nevada.
You can contact any local victim advocate for help with the application, or you can simply fill it out, print it, sign it, and send it to CalVCB via fax or regular mail:
