LARC Receives Grant Funding

Joe Denoyer - December 27, 2019 3:39 pm

Governor Kelly today announced the Federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Victim Assistance grant awards. These funds are generated by federal fines, penalty assessments, forfeited appearances and bail bonds. No taxpayer money is deposited into the Federal Crime Victims’ Fund.

“Grants for programs that assist victims and survivors of crime are so critical to Kansans,” Kelly said. “No one should have to go through this process alone. These grants will help fund the programs that victims and survivors can access during tragic situations.”

The VOCA grant program awards funds to eligible crime victim assistance programs. The programs provide services to victims and survivors of crime responding to the emotional, psychological or physical needs of crime victims. The grant helps victims of crime to stabilize their lives after a victimization; helps survivors to understand and participate in the criminal justice system; and restores a measure of security and safety for victims and survivors.

Specifically, programs provide crisis intervention, legal support, criminal justice assistance, safety planning, mental health, helpline counseling, and transitional housing, among other services.

A total of $20,520,561 was awarded to 65 organizations.
