Federal Grants go to Domestic Violence Programs

Millions in Covid-19 aid focused on home life in tribal regions.

Deputy director of the the U.S. Justice Department’s Office on Violence Against Women, Laura Rogers joined federal prosecutors recently in Oklahoma City to announce a large rollout of federal grants to combat domestic violence. Texas and Nevada were also recipients of the funds, much of which is directed toward Native American women.

“A victim’s safety and freedom from her abuser should not hinge on the jurisdictional boundaries around the crime scene,” Deputy Director Rogers said. “These new awards continue the Department’s commitment to equipping tribal prosecutors with the tools they need to curb domestic violence no matter where it occurs.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the more than half of Native American women who will endure violence in their lifetime.
  • That the Lord would use the aid provided by the Justice Department to protect women staying at home during Covid 19.
  • For the Justice Department as they seek to protect the American people during this pandemic.
