First off, we are sorry that you or your family have been physically or emotionally injured as the result of a crime.  We know that it can be an extremely difficult and challenging time, and we are here to help. 

When someone is the victim of a crime, some of the challenges may be financial, and we may be able to assist you with compensation for your financial losses.  Under the Crime Victim Compensation Act, funds are collected from those who are convicted of certain crimes and pooled together for distribution to crime victims. Within the Sixth Judicial District, the distribution of these funds is administered by a three-person citizen Board based upon the Board’s policies and procedures.  If you or a loved one has been the victim of a crime, please ask about applying for these funds as you may be entitled to compensation. 

If you would like to apply for Victim Compensations funds, please fill out this application form (also available en espanol).  If you have Victim Compensation applications or documents, please email or fax to 970-259-0200 Attn: Victim Compensation   You may also mail documents to Victim Compensation 1060 E. 2nd Avenue, Suite B10, Durango, CO  81301 or drop them off at the District Attorney's Office.  If you have additional questions, please call 970-247-8850
