CVAP Funding

If you or an immediate family member have been a victim or witness to violence, including physical and sexual abuse, you may be eligible for financial assistance to cover partial or full cost of counselling through Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). 

CVAP Application Information:

Victim’s Service workers offer assistance in applying for CVAP funding and answer any questions you may have. Even if you’re not sure if you have been a victim of crime, you can call VictimLinkBC at 1-800-563-0808 for assistance.

Application forms are also available from victim service programs or through the Crime Victim Assistance Program.

In most cases, the application must be received within one year from the date the crime took place. You do not have to wait for charges to be laid or for the offender to be convicted before applying.
