Crime Victims’ Compensation Program & Presumptive Eligibility Training
June 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Houston Area Regional Outreach Coordinator Crime Victim Services Division
Office of the Attorney General
State of Texas
This workshop will provide an overview of the Compensation Program and cover offense reports needed to deter-mine victims’ eligibility with an emphasis on the Eligibility process, The Crime Victims’ Compensation Program uses the Presumptive Eligibility (PE) process to better serve crime victims and their families. Completion of this workshop allows advocates, trained by the OAG, to work directly with victims to gather the necessary documentation in order to submit a complete application. Having a complete application streamlines the eligibility process and speeds our response to victims.
The Office of the Attorney General serves victims of crime by administering the Crime Victims’ Compensation Program and victim service-related grants and contracts, in addition to offering training and outreach programs. The Crime Victims’ Compensation Pro-gram reimburses out-of-pocket expenses to victims of violent crime and their families. The Crime Victims’ Compensation Fund can help eligible victims pay for medical and counseling bills incurred because of the crime and can help families cover the cost of the funeral for a loved one who has been killed. Grants and Contracts administered by the Office of the Attorney General help fund a broad range of victim-related services. Domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers, hotlines, victim advocacy, education, assistance with CVC applications and other victim-related services are available as a result of these grants and contracts. Assist in the compassionate and effective delivery of crime victim services by offering information, resources and financial assistance to crime victims and the organizations that assist them.
