“These funds will help provide direct services, such as counseling, personal advocacy, court advocacy, client transportation and support services to victims of crimes, including domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and elderly abuse,” Gov. Manchin said.

These VOCA projects have been recommended for funding by the West Virginia Against Violence Committee.
