Rehberg Announces $255,000 Grant for Dawson County Domestic Violence Program


WASHINGTON, DC, September 4, 2007 — Montana’s Congressman, Denny Rehberg, announced the Dawson County Domestic Violence Program has been awarded a $255,000 grant to help provide assistance and transitional housing for victims of domestic violence.

“Transitional housing plays a critical role in helping victims of domestic violence,” said Rehberg, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. “Additionally, proper training and resources are essential to meeting these victim’s needs. This grant is a huge boost for the Dawson County Domestic Violence Program.”

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and is part of the Transitional Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, or Sexual Assault Program. The primary purpose of the program is to provide assistance to abuse victims who are homeless or in need of transitional housing, short-term housing, and related support services.

Transitional Housing Program grantees also provide a broad range of services, such as transportation, counseling, child care, case management, employment counseling, or other assistance.

Rehberg oversees critical funding for many domestic violence programs through his seat on the House Labor, Heath and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee.
