TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback's office has awarded grants totaling more than $1 million to 22 groups that help victims of domestic violence.

The governor's office said Wednesday that the grants come from federal funds and are designed to ensure that victims can receive free services around the clock. The programs provide shelter, support groups, crisis intervention and help in obtaining court orders against abusers.

The grants went to groups in 21 counties.

The largest grant of almost $106,000 went to Safehome in Johnson County.

The YWCA of Wichita and Catholic Charities' Harbor House in Sedgwick County each received about $61,000.
