Programs to help crime victims can ask 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.
