(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Community Anti Violence Alliance of Steuben County will be getting over $19,000 from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports the money was part of $1.9 million released by the Institute Board to 42 agencies around the state but it was less than what the Steuben County agency and others had requested.
The Institute is withholding $1.2 million in state aid for domestic violence prevention groups until they get information on how the money will be spent.
Board of Trustees Chair John Hill, who is also Governor Pence's Deputy Chief of Staff, says rules on how the groups can apply for the $1.2 million will be issued Monday.
Anti violence groups are claiming the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is holding back funds that have been approved by the State Legislature.
Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence Executive Director Laura Berry says this is the second straight year all of the money has not gone out to anti violence programs.
