Carson City, NV  Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced the release of a Notice of Funding Opportunity for Nevada law enforcement agencies, prosecutorial offices, courts and non-profit organizations to apply for the Services-Training-Officers-Prosecutor (STOP) and Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP) grants. 

The Office of the Nevada Attorney General receives grant funding through the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and awards funding to local, regional and statewide programs providing victim services through non-profit service providers, law enforcement, prosecution and courts. These programs serve to enhance victim safety and hold offenders accountable for their crimes of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking in Nevada. 

“Victims and survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking are never to be blamed for the crimes committed against them," said AG Ford. “We must do everything we can to ensure that these victims have the help that that need. Funding through these grants helps to support victims and survivors by sending resources to programs who provide much-needed assistance.”
