Independent Reconciliation Program (IRP) for Victim-Survivors of Abuse Information

Background Information:

On February 17, 2020, the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia (the “Diocese”) announced the formation of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond Independent Reconciliation Program (IRP) to compensate victims of clergy sexual abuse of minors by clergy of the Diocese of Richmond.

The Diocese retained BrownGreer PLC, to administrate the IRP and to begin work effective immediately.

The key features of the Richmond Diocese IRP were as follows:

  • The Richmond IRP is purely voluntary; no individual is required to participate in the Program.
  • To register, please provide you name, contact information, and a summary description of the nature of the claim, including the dates and location of the abuse and name of the perpetrator.
  • New complaints of abuse received through the Richmond IRP must be reported to the local office of the District Attorney and to the Diocese for review.
  • Individuals who previously submitted a complaint of sexual abuse of minors to the Diocese but have not settled or received compensation will have an opportunity to seek compensation from the Richmond IRP.
  • Individuals who have not previously filed a complaint with the Diocese may register to participate in the Program on or before April 3, 2020.
  • Eligible claims will be paid October of this year.
  • Survivors who claimed abuse by lay teachers or members of religious orders will not receive compensation from the Richmond fund. It is limited to individuals abused by priests or deacons.

If you missed your opportunity for compensation through the Richmond IRP, contact Merson Law PLLC today to see if you can still seek compensation through other means.
