Please read all information on Crime Victims' Compensation carefully before filling out the Crime Victims' Compensation application. The Texas Crime Victims' Compensation Fund helps innocent victims and their families when they have no other means of paying for the financial burdens of crime. The fund is administered by the Crime Victims' Compensation Program of the Office of the Attorney General and the money in the fund comes from people who break the law. The Crime Victims’ Compensation Program provides financial assistance to victims of violent crime for crime-related expenses that cannot be reimbursed by insurance or other sources.
The Crime Victim Liaison can answer any questions you may have, as well as assistance you in completing the application.
