Community justice programs and support groups will receive more than $3.6 million in funding from the state.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced the funding Wednesday for 65 programs statewide.

Nearly all of the funding is for programs serving victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse and other crimes.

Some funding also will go toward funding prevention resource officers in schools.
