Henry County will get nearly $200,000 in grants for the District Attorney’s Victim Services Program.

Henry County victim services to benefit from grants

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted Nov. 21 to accept three grants totaling nearly $200,000 for the District Attorney’s Victim Services Program.

The funds were awarded to the Prosecuting Attorneys Council of Georgia from the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council for victim awareness assistance programs under the Victims of Crime Act. In Henry County the money will be used for the creation of a victim services advocate position and the continuation of a contract for an early notification advocate position as well as a contract counselor to provide individual and group services.
