By The Register-Herald

Gov. Jim Justice recently announced that he has awarded $5.4 million in West Virginia Community Corrections Grant Program funds to 30 projects, including nearly $1.3 million split among eight different projects in southern West Virginia.

The funds will be used to assist local communities in the establishment and continued operation of community corrections programs.

The West Virginia Community Corrections Grant Program is intended to provide a means for communities to develop, establish and maintain community-based corrections programs to provide the judicial system with sentencing alternatives for those offenders who may require less than institutional custody. These funds are administered by the Justice and Community Services section of the West Virginia Division of Administrative Services.
