Introduction

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that he secured $1,327,500 to two Ohio organizations to support survivors of sexual violence and assault. These investments will improve collaboration between organizations to increase education, safe and accessible care, and advocacy and intervention services for survivors.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

“Every Ohioan should feel safe in their homes, in their workplace and in their communities. Local Ohioans are doing important work helping survivors on the road to recovery from violent crimes and abuse,” said Brown. “It’s why we worked to secure this investment to support survivors and to prevent violence in our community.”

Funding Details

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs has awarded the funds as Congressionally Directed Spending through the Training and Services to End Violence and Abuse Against Individuals with Disabilities and Deaf People Program. Brown requested and secured this funding.

Investments Awarded

  • $720,000 to the Ohio Domestic Violence Network to support survivors that have disabilities related to brain injuries that are directly caused by domestic violence or sexual assault, especially in rural areas of Ohio and other underserved populations. The investment will be used to develop professional cross trainings for local service providers on traumatic brain injuries, implement new healthcare policies, provide advocacy and intervention services, and increase access to educational materials on domestic and sexual violence.
  • $607,500 to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center to enhance a multidisciplinary team known as Deaf Pathways that provides accessible services to Deaf survivors through collaboration with partner organizations, increasing education on the intersection of trauma-informed practice and Deaf culture, and providing culturally specific services for Deaf survivors inclusive of multiple disabilities and cultural and racial identities.
