COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s attorney general says more than 300 providers in Ohio are sharing $51 million in grant money for delivering services to crime victims.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says the money is awarded as a result of increased grant funding from the U.S. Department of Justice. The fund is financed by federal settlements, fines and fees.

The funds will help agencies that provide services to at-risk youth and human trafficking victims, court-appointed special advocates and child advocacy centers.

An estimated $15 million will support services for domestic violence victims, nearly $10 million will go to prosecutor-based programs and another $9 million will help serving victims of sexual assault. About $1.3 million will help to implement a 24-hour statewide sexual violence hotline.
