Financial Impact of Incarceration on Families Survey - Please complete and return ASAP (Click here for the survey)
When someone is incarcerated most families experience financial losses as a result of the incarceration. However, the loss is greatest for those families who try to maintain the offender as a family member. In recent years there has been improvement in the efforts of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and the Texas Legislature to help families stay connected but it has come at a cost. TIFA would like to know what that financial burden is for families and if there is a way to lower that financial burden. In 2013, TIFA would like to pursue requests to lower fees and profits and make it easier to have offenders moved closer to families for visitation.
