Title: Allocation of Funds to Homicide Survivors, Inc. Discussion/Action: Allocation of $500,000.00 in one-time funding from Pima County to Homicide Survivors to fill gaps left from the loss of grant funding from the State of Arizona and a drop in federal Victims of Crimes Act funds, both of which have resulted in a 40% drop in Homicide Survivor's budget even as homicide rates have spiked 50% this year, rendering the organization's services more crucial to our community than ever before.
