Governor Perry Announces Grant to Aid Hale County Crime Victims

On Wednesday, Governor Rick Perry announced the award of a $65,000 grant to Hale County to help victims of crime. The grant is awarded under the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA).

“It is important to all Texans that we support programs that protect the public, administer justice, and offer hope and healing to victims,” Perry said. “Victims services programs will help our most vulnerable Texas citizens and youth to recover by providing safe places to receive services and shelter.”

The grant was awarded to the Hale County Crisis Center, Inc., to provide crisis counseling and other support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. VOCA funds are distributed by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) to victims services programs through a collaborative process with local planners to serve victims in Texas .

Each year, CJD provides more than $130 million in grants to help Texans at the forefront of the fight against crime. CJD funds a variety of programs for juvenile justice, crime prevention and victim services grants – all aimed at making Texas a safer place.
