Governor Justice awards over $16.8 million in VOCA grants following last year’s federal cuts

Charleston, WV (WOAY) – Governor Jim Justice approved over $16.8 million in Victims of Crime Act Assistance (VOCA) sub-grant funds to 83 public and private nonprofit organizations statewide. The grant will fund VOCA services such as counseling, personal advocacy, client transportation, and victim support services to help them through difficult times.

VOCA experienced federal cuts to its funding last year. The grant will provide VOCA with the supplemental funding required to reach pre-pandemic levels and effectively help those seeking help escape violence and abuse. Office of Victims of Crime, the Office of Justice Programs of the U.S. Department of Justice, awarded the funds, which will be administered by the West Virginia Division of Administrative Services, Justice and Community Services section.
