CLEVELAND - Ohio's most populous county has landed a federal grant to reduce the number of women killed by husbands or boyfriends.
Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, was one of 12 communities nationwide receiving grants from the U.S. Department of Justice. The grants range from $100,000 to $200,000.
The grants were announced Wednesday near Washington by Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder. The grants will address the high risk of abused women being killed by a husband or spouse.
The White House says women threatened with a weapon by a husband or boyfriend are 20 times more likely to subsequently be murdered than other abused women.
The grants will help identify potential victims and monitor high-risk offenders.
