NEW! Additional Support for Victims of Human Trafficking:
The Victims and Vulnerable Persons Division (VVPD) of the Ministry of the Attorney General (MAG) funds the Victim Quick Response Program (VQRP or the Program) to support victims of violent crimes by providing financial assistance with essential expenses in order to lessen the impact of the crime, enhance safety, and meet practical needs.
The Victim Quick Response Program Standards for Victims of Human Trafficking (HT) were created in order to address the complexity and multi-faceted needs of HT victims.
