Gov. Justice awards $17.3 million in Victims of Crime Act grants to 84 agencies across West Virginia

CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice announced today at the beginning of his COVID-19 briefing that he has awarded $17,301,804 in Victims of Crime Act Assistance (VOCA) sub-grant funds to 84 public and private non-profit agencies throughout the state.

“We need to help victims of violent crime in every way we possibly can,” Gov. Justice said. “With the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen a rise in the number of West Virginians using our nonprofit agencies for assistance. That’s why they desperately need this funding, and why I am proud to get it to them today.”

The Victims of Crime Act Assistance sub-grant funds will provide such direct services as counseling, personal advocacy, court advocacy, client transportation, and support services to victims of crimes including domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, and elder abuse. The funds will also support assistance to victims as they move through the criminal justice system.

The VOCA funds are awarded from the Office for Victims of Crime at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs. The Justice and Community Services section of the Division of Administrative Services, part of the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, is administering these funds.

“I want to thank the U.S. Department of Justice and the Trump Administration for providing this funding to assist these nonprofit agencies in West Virginia that are dedicated to helping our citizens who have been victims of terrible criminal acts as they recover,” Gov. Justice said.
