  • $1.5M Federal Grant to Reimburse Agencies for 12/14-Related Costs

    US Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday, December 17, that a $1.5-million federal grant will be provided to reimburse organizations and agencies that provided direct support to the victims, first responders, and the Newtown community in the immediate aftermath of the 12/14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

    The Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) provided the grant to the Connecticut Judicial Branch, which administers funding for services to victims of violent crime.
