Deadline for the Nevada Victims of Crime Program
If you were present at the Route 91 Harvest Festival during the shooting that occurred in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017, you must submit an application to the Nevada Victims of Crime Program within one year of the crime, or by Oct. 1, 2018.
Funds from the Nevada Victims of Crime Program may help reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the shooting such as medical bills and counseling co-pays. Even if you live outside of Nevada or don’t have any eligible expenses now, survivors are urged to file an application with the program by the due date to be eligible for future assistance. Many survivors of mass violence and trauma seek counseling months or years after an incident.
Applying for assistance today will help ensure your eligibility in the future. Save your ticket stub, wristband, receipts, or photos of you at the event as proof of attendance.
Caring staff at the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center are available to answer questions about the Nevada Victims of Crime Program and can help you complete an application.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday Pacific Time except holidays.
