CalVCP can only reimburse crime-related expenses that are not covered by other sources. There are limits on how much can be paid for each loss. The program cannot pay any expense for a person who is on felony probation, on parole, in jail or in prison (a person who is not a felon can be reimbursed for funeral and crime-scene cleanup expenses even though the victim was a felon).
