Arizona Victims of the 1 October Route 91 Harvest Festival Shooting – Resource Information, and Request for Help.

| September 16, 2018

The State of Nevada has identified approximately 595 ticket holders to the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017 from Arizona.  Anyone that was present at the shooting is encouraged to submit an application with the Nevada Victims of Crime Program by October 1, 2018.

As of today’s date, survivors of the October 1 shooting have just a few weeks left to apply with the Nevada Victims of Crime Program.  Anyone who was present at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas during the shooting is encouraged to submit an application with the program by Oct. 1 of this year, no matter where survivors may reside or whether they were physically injured or not during the attack.

According to mental health experts, many survivors of mass violence and trauma seek counseling months or years after an incident. Even if survivors don’t feel they need assistance now, they should get an application on file with the program by Oct. 1 in case they seek help in the future.

The program will help pay for out-of-pocket expenses related to the crime such as counseling co-pays. Anyone with questions about the program or needing help with applying, should contact the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center via its website, www.VegasStrongRC.org or by phone, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., all weekdays except holidays. The toll-free number is: 1 (833) 299-2433. The local number is (702) 455-AIDE (2433). The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center is here to serve any victim of the shooting regardless of their location.

More information about the Nevada Victims of Crime Program is also on the Resiliency Center’s website. The State of Nevada respectful requests the attached flyer be posted on websites and social media sites.
