Guam - The U.S. Department of Justice awarded the Government of Guam $659,856 in federal assistance today. According to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, the funds will be administered by the governor's office and distributed to government and non-profit stakeholders as part of the STOP violence against women formula grant. The program encourages development and implementation of effective, victim centered law enforcement, prosecution, and court strategies to address violent crimes against women and the development and enhancement of victim services in cases involving crimes against women.

Bordallo states,  "The federal funds received today will help improve services to women victims of violence and the prosecution of those who perpetrate these crimes. It is important that Guam continue to develop programs that support victims of crime in our society, and these funds will be used by government and community partners to better protect women in our community from harm."
