(This amendment provides an additional $4,000,000 over the biennium to increase support for sexual assault crisis centers that provide services to victims of sexual violence. As the Commonwealth enacts new policies to encourage reporting of sexual assault on college campuses, this additional funding is even more critical in safeguarding the availability of these victim services across the Commonwealth.)
