Grant to Study Domestic Violence in Winnebago County

WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) – Domestic violence is a huge issue in our community, and now, Winnebago County is getting a new tool in helping put a stop to it.

We’re one of just 12 communities nationwide to receive a grant from the Department of Justice to study domestic violence. Winnebago County will get $188,000 to find better ways to prevent spousal abuse and figure out what’s keeping more victims from coming forward.

Once the county develops and action plan, it could be eligible for more money.
