Word is getting out about the stunning news from the DOJ about cuts to the SAVS program – totally 42.5%! This, paired with a revision in the way that funds are distributed make for a devastating hit to many of WCASA’s member SASP’s (sexual assault service providers).
The only “good” news to come of this is that It’s news – people are talking about it and many media outlets across the state. We’re doing our best to keep a running tally of these – so if you’re curious about the coverage, see the list on our Media : In the News page.
