State attorney general awards $1M in grant money among 23 rape crisis centers across Ohio

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s attorney general has awarded $1 million in new grant funding to 25 rape crisis centers across the state.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says 23 agencies will each receive a grant of more than $36,000 to help survivors of sexual assault.

A statement from DeWine says the grants mark the first use of Ohio’s new Rape Crisis Program Trust Fund. He says the agencies meet the services defined by Ohio’s core standards for rape crisis programs.

Some agencies receiving the grants include Women Helping Women in Cincinnati, the YWCA of Northwest Ohio in Toledo and the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center.

DeWine says a statewide training grant of $95,000 was awarded to the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence. The agency in Cleveland is a federally recognized statewide sexual assault coalition.
