Forced or Involuntary Sterilization Compensation Program Annual Report
Many people who lived in state-run hospitals, homes and institutions through 1979 were sterilized, leaving them unable to have biological children. Additionally, many people who were in custody of a state prison or other correctional facility after 1979 were forcibly or involuntarily sterilized. If you were a victim, apply here.
The Forced or Involuntary Sterilization Compensation Program financially compensates survivors of state-sponsored sterilization.
CalVCB began accepting applications for compensation on Jan. 1, 2022, and will continue accepting them through Dec. 31, 2023. Statute requires that CalVCB annually submit a report to the Legislature, including information about applications received, the demographics of claimants and outreach activities.
