Serving the Community

In 2021-22, CalVCB expanded many benefits and services available to victims.

Through legislative and budget changes, CalVCB has grown the Trauma Recovery Center Program and changed how erroneously convicted persons are compensated. The successful launch of the Forced or Involuntary Sterilization Compensation Program (FISCP) continued support of mass violence victims and compensation for human trafficking victims have also been areas that CalVCB has actively supported victims.
