A Salina organization is among those receiving grants from Governor Sam Brownback’s office that help victims of domestic violence. The grants going to 22 groups total more than $1 million.

The governor’s office says that the grants come from federal funds and are designed to ensure that victims can receive free services around the clock. The programs provide shelter, support groups, crisis intervention and help in obtaining court orders against abusers.

The grants went to groups in 21 counties.

The largest grant of almost $106,000 went to Safehome in Johnson County.

The Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas is receiving $48,930.
