State: Groups can apply for crime victim services grants

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Grants are available to organizations in Michigan that provide services to crime victims.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Crime Victim Services Commission will award three- to five-year U.S. Department of Justice grants of $50,000 or more.

Applications will be accepted through April 18 at 3 p.m.

Agencies seeking the grants must be public or nonprofit organizations that provide direct services to crime victims. Eligible organizations can include — but are not limited to — sexual assault treatment centers, domestic violence programs, child abuse programs and children’s advocacy centers.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
