For more information, see Eligibility criteria.
If payment is approved, the amount will be paid from an eligible family member’s financial assistance for immediate needs.
This application must be signed by a family member of the homicide victim, or by a representative or support person on behalf of the family member.
PDF forms are also available.
If you need help completing your application, you can ask a support worker, friend or family member. Or contact Victims Services.
* If the violent crime was reported to Police, you don't need to send us a Police Report. You just need to provide as much information as you can about what has happened to you in the application form.
