Non-profits serving Bucks County crime victims recently received $8.5 million dollars in state grants.

The funds come from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and must be used to serve crime victims or for offender probation programming.

The Network of Victim Assistance got more than half of the total with $4,481,387. Other beneficiaries include:

  • A Woman’s Place – $2,127,215.
  • Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania – $1,689,915.
  • Plumstead Township – $106,118.

“These funding awards will help support critical work by these exemplary organizations to provide assistance to survivors of domestic violence and other crimes,” said Sen. Santarsiero. “The programs supported by these funds benefit our community by providing crisis response to those in need. I am proud of the organizations committed to serving our residents here in Bucks County and the important services they offer.”
