Native American tribes receive funding for crime victims

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – The federal government is providing more than two million dollars to help Native American crime victims in Maine.

Senators Susan Collins and Angus King said the money ensures survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault receive needed resources and strengthens communities disproportionately affected by these crimes.

The Mi’kmaq Nation, Passamaquoddy Tribe Indian Township, Penobscot Nation, Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians and the Wabanaki Women’s Coalition received more than $350,000 to establish these services.

The money comes from the US Department of Justice.
