and to increase a victim's safety. It is intended to help contribute to the costs of counseling, emergency home
repair, funeral and emergency expenses.
This support is available to victims of homicide, attempted murder, serious physical
assault, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and hate crimes.
