FAQ: Question & Answer
Can individuals apply for Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program (AEAP) funding?
No, individuals cannot apply for AEAP funding. Help in your area is available from your State/Local Victim Compensation and Assistance programs. Assistance may come in the form of financial reimbursement or victim services. Funding support for state assistance and compensation programs comes from the Crime Victims Fund administered by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) as authorized by the Victim of Crime Act (VOCA).
Another source of help is your local victim/witness assistance program. You may contact the VictimConnect helpline by phone at 855–484–2846 or online chat for a referral in your area.
