In an effort to protect people in precarious situations amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Gov. Chris Sununu has established two funds to help victims of domestic and sexual violence and the state’s most vulnerable children.
“These are issues that don’t just disappear because of a public health emergency,” Sununu said during a Wednesday news conference. “If anything, they actually may even be exacerbated.”
Sununu said $600,000 will be allocated to assist victims of domestic and sexual violence as they try to remove themselves from dangerous situations. The money will help cover basic expenses like groceries, rent and educational materials; put them up in hotels when shelters are at capacity; and provide funding to crisis centers, so they can remain open.
