The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention is accepting applications for nearly $3 million in grants from the STOP Violence Against Women Grant Program. STOP, which stands for Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors, is open to public and non-profit organizations that serve victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The deadline to apply for grants for the program is August 24, 2018.
Funding from the program may be used for such services as crisis intervention, therapy, prosecution of domestic violence and sexual assault cases, staff training, advocacy and accompaniment, temporary shelter, and sexual assault forensic examinations. This is the 22nd year of the grant.
