$45 million in federal aid to be spent on violence prevention, crime victim services, Gov. Evers announces

Gov. Tony Evers on Wednesday announced a $45 million allocation of federal pandemic aid for violence prevention and crime victim services that he anticipated would begin reaching communities across Wisconsin within weeks.  

“Much like the pandemic, this is another public health crisis that deserves our attention and our action. And much like any public health issue, it starts with prevention. Violence and its impact on kids, families and communities is not inevitable,” Evers said during a news conference at the COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St. in Milwaukee.
