Governor Chris Sununu Approves NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence Grant Application

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu sent a letter to Attorney General Gordon MacDonald approving a grant application for $600,000 submitted by the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, which ensures the availability of resources for victims of domestic and sexual violence during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

"This emergency fund will ensure that domestic and sexual violence centers have the resources needed to provide critical services to victims of domestic violence," said Governor Chris Sununu. "It will begin by providing funding to assist directly with victims' needs to cover groceries, rent, health products, educational materials for children. It will also create emergency shelter funding for hotel stays, as well as expenses for crisis center operations."
