Governor Ivey awards grants to help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault statewide

Governor Kay Ivey has provided grants totaling $ 6.8 million to help provide services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as training and resources to local law enforcement agencies and non-profit.

The funds will provide services including safe shelters, crisis lines, counseling, referrals, advocacy, community education and prevention services.

“Unfortunately, domestic violence affects some families and residents of Alabama, and they deserve to have access to prompt and compassionate services to help them navigate the process of preventing further abuse,” Governor Ivey said. “I am happy to support these organizations which help victims as well as investigations.”

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs administers grants from funds made available by the US Department of Justice. ADECA administers a wide range of programs that support law enforcement, economic development, infrastructure upgrades, recreation, energy conservation, and water resource management.

“ADECA shares Governor Ivey’s dedication to helping victims of domestic violence by ensuring that they and those who help them have the resources and training they need,” said ADECA Director , Kenneth Boswell.
