Anne Arundel receives nearly $100K from Hogan to battle violence against women

| November 25, 2018
Rams Head

The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) today announced more than $2.5 million in grants from the federal STOP Violence Against Women Grant Program. STOP, which stands for Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors, is awarded to public and non-profit organizations that serve victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

“There is no more important job than keeping our citizens safe,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “This funding will help connect women who have been victims of a crime to the vital services and resources they need to recover and rebuild their lives.”

Under federal guidelines, 25 percent of the funding is allocated to prosecution; 25 percent to law enforcement; 30 percent to victim services/non-profits; five percent to court entities; and 10 percent is allocated at the state’s discretion. Funding from the program may be used for such services as crisis intervention, therapy, prosecution of domestic violence and sexual assault cases, staff training, advocacy and accompaniment, temporary shelter, and sexual assault forensic examinations.

“This is an important program that helps and supports women who have been victimized by crime,” said V. Glenn Fueston, Jr., GOCCP Executive Director. “The funding announced today will help those organizations and agencies to strengthen their programs and strategies to reduce domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in Maryland. Making Maryland safer is a comprehensive approach in which we are all working together.”
