Manhattan Crisis Center receives grant

By Corene Brisendine

Manhattan Crisis Center has received $128,649 in 2014 funding from the federal government.

Executive director Judy Davis said the funding comes from the Victims of Crime Act, and they receive a portion of the money collected from fines and forfeitures.

She said they have received the money each year, but the amount has dropped for 2014.

“It’s less than previous years, but it’s still helpful,” Davis said.

She said they use the money to fund three positions and crisis intervention services, and that it pays for things like the crisis hotline and other services.

Davis said the center has seen a drop in all state and federal funding this year.

She said the center gets the funding from the government in October because its fiscal year runs from October to September.
