Eric Holder on Families & Children

Attorney General-Designee

 


$2.3M in grants to help reduce domestic violence homicides

Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder today announced grants to target the urgent need to reduce domestic violence homicides. On average, three women a day die as a result of domestic violence, and women whose partner threatens them with a gun or other weapon are 20 times more likely to subsequently be murdered than other abused women.

The Department of Justice will award $2.3 million to 12 sites across the country as part of the new Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Demonstration Initiative. "Domestic violence is a devastating crime--and it claims far too many lives every day," said Attorney General Holder. "With today's grant announcement, we are strengthening our ability to fight back more effectively--and aggressively--than ever before. And we're supporting the kinds of evidence-based domestic violence homicide prevention models that will allow us to reliably predict potentially lethal behavior, take steps to stop the escalation of violence and save lives
