A Liberal organization has been awarded a more than $53,000 grant to provide services for victims of crime, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

 

The $53,054 grant was awarded to the Liberal Area Rape Crisis & Domestic Violence Service, Inc., to provide services to domestic violence and sexual assault crime victims through advocacy; support and assistance; awareness and prevention activities; staffing the shelter overnight for advocacy and safety; and assist those with limited English proficiency to understand their rights and to provide all services in their language.

 

“Organizations across Kansas do great work every day to support victims of crime,” Schmidt said. “We are proud to support these organizations through the victims services grant programs.”

 

The award was made from the Protection from Abuse Fund, which is funded by State General Fund appropriations, marriage license fees, county court costs and municipal court assessments.

 

This year, the attorney general’s office awarded nearly $2.6 million in grants to local and state crime victim assistance organizations. More information on the grant programs and the full list of award recipients is available on the attorney general’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.
