Federal, state funds cut for victim assistance grants
Because fund have been cut for victim assistance grants at both the federal and state level, Rural Iowa Crisis Center in Creston might be looking at a major change in their future.
Federal funding for fiscal year 2013 will be approximately 18 percent less than it was in fiscal year 2010, and state general fund appropriations will be approximately 7 percent less in fiscal year 2013 compared to fiscal year 2010.
The Iowa Attorney General's office has proposed changes to improve crime victim services. These changes would enlarge service areas by dividing Iowa into six regions. Within those six regions, the Iowa Attorney General's office would fund one or two comprehensive domestic violence service and advocacy programs, one or two comprehensive sexual assault service and advocacy programs, and one or two emergency shelter programs.
