TOPEKA — A Hays organization has been awarded a grant of more than $27,000 to provide services for victims of crime, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Thursday.

Options: Domestic and Sexual Violence Services Inc. was awarded a $27,500 grant to provide administrative support and supervision for direct client services for victims of domestic violence, stalking or sexual violence and human trafficking.

“Organizations across our state do great work to support thousands of crime victims each year,” Schmidt said. “We are proud to support the work of these organizations through the victims services grant programs.”

The award was made from the Protection from Abuse Fund, which is funded by State General Fund appropriations, marriage license fees, county court costs and municipal court assessments.

This year, the attorney general’s office awarded more than $2.3 million in grants to local and state crime victim assistance organizations. More information on the grant programs and the full list of award recipients is available on the attorney general’s website at
