TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - More than $4.6 million has been awarded to sexual and domestic violence programs to support services throughout the Sunflower State.

On Wednesday, June 8, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly says $4,697,713 was awarded to sexual and domestic violence programs throughout the Sunflower State via the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act administered by the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act.

Gov. Kelly said the funds will help sexual assault support centers transition to virtual or remote support services and increase the ability to offer services to survivors. She said the money will also go toward steps to increase access to COVID-19 testing, vaccines, and mobile health units to promote public health.

“This funding will help sexual and domestic abuse survivors access the support and resources they need – no matter where they are in the state,” Kelly said. “We will continue using every tool we have to keep Kansans safe and healthy.”
