More than $155,000 has been awarded in state grants to support criminal justice in Cambria County, state Rep. Frank Burns, D-East Taylor Township, announced Wednesday.
The county was awarded two grants that make up the total, one of which was for $90,000 to support nonincarceration programs for criminal offenders, such as monitoring and house arrest, and to provide training, and treatment to transition offenders back to society and education.
The second grant was for $165,169 and will help offset costs associated with adult probation programs.
“As a founding member of the Blue Lives Matters Caucus, I recognize and appreciate the hard work of everyone who serve and keep us safe,” Burns said in a press release.
These funds were provided by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
