1 October Victim Information Guide
Nevada Victims of Crime Program "VOCP"
Everyone at the concert, where ever they reside, is eligible for assistance through Nevada State
Crime Victim Compensation Program. This program will reimburse victims for medical bills, funeral expenses, and mental health counseling that are not covered by insurance. If you have medical insurance, your bills, including counseling, must be billed to your insurance company prior to submitting your bills to VOCP. Please contact your medical providers to ensure they have your health Insurance information on file. Applications for crime victim compensation can be found at http://voc.nv.gov/VOC/.
California Victims Compensation Board
California residents who were at the Route 91 Harvest Festival attack on Sunday, October 1, can apply to the California Victim Compensation Board which 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, victims are encouraged to apply now in case you incur expenses in the future, such as counseling. California residents of the attack may receive benefits from both the Nevada and California Programs, but should complete the special CA/NV joint application which can be found at: https://victims.ca.gov/lasvegas.
