Governor Cuomo has announced over four million dollars in funding to support child advocacy centers and mobile units.
The mobile units ensure that child abuse victims and their non-offending family members have access to the services they need closer to home.
Four counties, including Tioga, will each receive $150,000 the first year and then $100,000 the following two years for the expansion of child advocacy centers.
Six other mostly rural counties, including Delaware, will receive new mobile units along with $50,000 a year for the next three years to operate them.
The first mobile unit is expected to be on the road in May in Delaware County.
