State gets millions to help crime victims | News
(WMC-TV) - Crime victims in Mississippi will soon receive a helping hand from the state thanks to a grant from the federal government.
The $3.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice was announced Monday.
“Victims too often face multiple burdens after a crime. This grant is intended to assist organizations and service providers in their efforts to help those whose lives have been disrupted by criminal activities,” U.S. Senator Thad Cochran said in a written statement.
The money will be divvied up between state, local, community and non-profit groups.
The grant will be used to help provide better assistance and services to crime victims.
