EDINBURG — A district court here will apply for close to $1 million in grant funding to assist local residents.
Those grants include the Court Efficiency Intervention Project, Victims Empowerment Project and Young Adult Re-Energizing Project. Judge Noe Gonzalez with the 370th District Court made the request to the Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court on Tuesday.
“Each one of those grants has its pluses,” he said.
Gonzalez said the projects would allow the county to help offer public awareness on family violence and victims of crime.
