October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This year, Governor Kathy Hochul announced $6.5 million in funding that will allow state licensed service providers to offer survivors of domestic violence and their families with options for assistance and support, instead of relying on shelter-based services.

The funding from the American Rescue Plan includes $4.8 million to 79 service providers statewide.

Another $1.7 million goes to five nonprofit organizations that offer domestic violence prevention programs. Each of these programs will receive $342,380: Retreat, Inc. in East Hampton, the New York City Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, Unity House of Troy, Vera House in Syracuse and Family Justice Center of Erie County.
