Agencies and organizations that serve victims of domestic violence may apply for grants from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute through March 4.
About 70 percent of the state’s federal award for Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors grants is expected to be distributed to prosecutor offices, law enforcement agencies and courts, ICJI said in announcing funding available under the federal Violence Against Women Act. STOP grants aim to meet needs and issues arising from domestic/dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
Registered organizations may apply for the grants at https://egrants.cji.in.gov. First-time applicants must register on the website before submitting proposals. An Egrants manual is also available at http://www.in.gov/cji/2375.htm.
Last year, ICJI awarded more than $2 million in STOP grants in Indiana.
