Programs that help crime victims eligible for funds

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Programs that offer services to victims of violent crime may be eligible for funding through the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet.

Those eligible to apply include public or not-for-profit programs such as domestic violence shelters, child advocacy centers, rape crisis centers, prosecutorial and crisis intervention programs and other advocacy programs for direct service to victims.

Applications for the funding through the federal Victims of Crime Act are due by June 15.

The cabinet says the program provides hands-on assistance and direct services to victims of crime, such as crisis intervention and follow-up, therapy, group counseling, information and referral, court advocacy and assistance with victim compensation claims.
