HARISBURG — Acting U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler announced this week that the Department of Justice’s Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) has awarded $172,076 to PA Coalition Against Rape, located in Enola, to help combat sexual assault, and $98,706 to PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence, located in Harrisburg, to help combat domestic violence.

Brandler said OVW’s grant to PA Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) will build on and sustain on PCAR’s prior efforts to enhance services to under and unserved communities impacted by sexual harassment, abuse and assault. Funding from this grant helps support local efforts to improve services and infrastructure to better serve all members of communities impacted by sexual violence.
