Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the administration has awarded a total of $4,757,000 to support programs serving crime victims across the state. These grants will be distributed by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention to 57 agencies and 27 organizations statewide to be utilized in Fiscal Year 2018.
“Our administration is committed to ensuring the safety of all of our citizens, and this includes supporting victims of crime while holding offenders accountable for their actions,” said Governor Hogan. “We will continue to use all of our available resources to ensure that victims are treated with dignity and have access to the quality services they need to heal.”
These grants will fund activities supporting victims of domestic violence and other crimes, as well as survivors of homicide, including crisis and legal services. Moreover, these grants will ensure the implementation of the Declaration of Crime Victims’ Rights Amendment to the Maryland Constitution, as well as other laws which benefit victims and witnesses of crime.
