Grant to Assist Sexual Assault Victims Statewide

Governor Robert Bentley has awarded a grant of nearly $271,500 to help local agencies and organizations provide more comprehensive services to sexual assault victims in Alabama. The Alabama Coalition Against Sexual Violence is using the grant to support 14 local programs across the state that offer emergency shelter and operate rape crisis centers and 24-hour hotlines. The organizations also conduct education programs at schools, churches, civic clubs and hospitals focusing on how to spot the warning signs of sexual abuse, prevent assaults and refer victims to receive the help they need.
