The Office of the Attorney General is launching the Landowner Compensation Program (LCP) passed by the Legislature as SB 1133 in the 88th Regular Session. We are pleased to announce the final administrative rule was published on Friday, May 3, 2024. The online application is live and can be accessed here.

Landowner Compensation Application 

The Landowner Compensation Program’s purpose is to provide compensation for damage to real property on agricultural land caused by trespass in connection with a border crime. Landowners who have experienced such damage can be reimbursed for repair costs not covered by other sources, such as to a damaged fence or barn, for up to $75,000 in damages. The damage will need to be documented in a written law enforcement agency report to be eligible for compensation. 

The online application system is intended to make the application process streamlined for landowners. The program will send correspondence by email to make communication and application processing efficient. 

We thank you for your patience as we were setting up this new program.
