If you suffered real property damage on agricultural land due to a border crime and feel that you may qualify for this compensation program, the following are some of the documents that you will need to have: 

  1. Obtain a police report of the incident/crime; 
  2. Maintain any and all documentation of proof that property damage was sustained; and
  3. Maintain any and all proof of repairs (if made).

More information is forthcoming on the steps and processes for filing a claim for compensation.
