Capito, Manchin announce more than $11 million for Justice Services

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced several grants totaling $11,520,681 to support multiple criminal justice programs. Funding is provided by the Department of Justice (DOJ).

“These grants support several critical programs for survivors of abuse, those struggling with opioid addiction, and vulnerable groups like women and children,” Senator Capito said. “I’m especially appreciate funding going to support West Virginia’s first Family Drug Court Program in Boone County. Family drug courts have shown great success in other states, so I’m eager to see these courts help restore healthy West Virginia families.”

“West Virginians believe in helping our neighbors and bettering our communities, especially those hit hardest by the opioid epidemic that has ravaged our state. These investments from the Department of Justice will expand community services across West Virginia and help those community members in need. I look forward to seeing the positive impact these investments have in our communities and will continue to advocate to help solve the problems our state faces,” Senator Manchin said.
