Victims of Crime Financial Assistance schemes (ACT)

This section provides information on the financial assistance schemes operating in the ACT for victims of crime.

The ACT is currently transitioning from the existing Financial Assistance Scheme to a New Financial Assistance Scheme. As a result there are currently two schemes in operation.

Please visit the Which Scheme Applies to me? page for more information about which scheme you are eligible to apply to.
