A $53,847 grant was awarded to the Liberal Area Rape Crisis & Domestic Violence Service, Inc., to support the ongoing operating expenses of the domestic violence/sexual assault center.

“Organizations across Kansas do great work every day to support victims of crime,” Attorney General Derek Schmidt said. “We are proud to support these organizations through the victim 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 $2.3 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.
