The Denver Center for Crime Victims Receives $581,000 Grant
The Denver Center for Crime Victims (DCCV) announced today they have received a $581,000 grant from the Legal Assistance for Victims (LAV) Grant Program. The funds will increase the availability of civil and criminal legal assistance needed to effectively aid victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking who are seeking relief in legal matters arising as a consequence of that abuse or violence.
The LAV Grant Program encourages the development of innovative, collaborative projects that provide quality representation to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
DCCV will partner with Colorado Legal Services, Project Safeguard, Alternatives to Family Violence, and the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program to provide services under The Violence Against Women Act in immigration services, custody/divorce/ protection orders and specialized counseling services for 300 clients during the 2012–2013 period.
