Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today announced more than $1 million in grants for the 2017 Federal Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) grant program. The FVPSA grants provide funds to domestic violence programs that ensure services are available 24-hours a day and are free to domestic violence victims and their children.

Many programs provide outreach, shelter, support groups, crisis intervention, advocacy in obtaining protection from abuse orders, court accompaniment, transportation, and prevention education in schools and communities.
