The Massachusetts Attorney General's Office (AGO) is administering the Mass. NECC Program with federal Victims of Crime Act funds granted to us through the Office for Victims of Crime of the U.S. Department of Justice. The AGO has finalized program guidelines and we are implementing the program with three basic principles in mind: to provide maximum possible benefit to eligible victims and survivors; to simplify the process of making a claim; and to maintain compliance with all federal and state laws, regulations, and rules. You can call us at 617-573-5375 or email NECCAssistance@state.ma.us.
While the formal application window closed on December 31, 2018, the AGO will review and make payments to any remaining eligible claimants in the coming months, for as long as we are able to do so. Please call us directly with any question you may have regarding whether you are still able to file an application with the Program.
