Marshalltown DVA/SAC will no longer serve Jasper County come July
The Domestic Violence Alternatives and Sexual Assault Center located in Marshalltown has served victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in Jasper County since 1985. However, as a result of cuts to funding and a subsequent reorganization of the Crime Victim Assistance Division of the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, DVA/SAC will no longer serve Jasper County effective July 1, 2013.
Cuts totalling $1.1 million already have been applied to CVAD’s budget, with funding expected to decrease by another million dollars over the next fiscal year, DVA/SAC executive director Dotti Thompson explained during a public meeting held at the Newton Public Library on Tuesday afternoon.
As a result, the state has been divided into six regions, with the 28 programs currently in place across Iowa eventually consolidating into 12-15 programs. This, paired with an initiative to shift both focus and money more toward outreach as opposed to shelters, will help programs statewide continue to operate despite recent budget cuts.
