Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet have approved additional grants to support victims and families affected by the Marshall County High School shooting.
The two grants come through the federal Victims of Crime Act. The Marshall County Board of Education will receive more than $260,000 dollars for its Marshall Strong Recovery Project.
This will pay for a coordinator to develop and oversee a comprehensive recovery plan. More than $220,000 will go to support victim services during the trial of the accused shooter.
