New Jersey hospitals secure $10M for violence intervention

New Jersey's Hospital-based Violence Intervention Program secured a $10 million grant in the form of American Rescue Plan funds, TapInto reported Jan. 23.

The program aims to help clinicians provide trauma informed approaches to gun violence victims to reduce retaliatory violence. Launched three years ago, the program has helped more than 180 people.

"These innovative violence intervention programs support survivors of gun violence from the very early stages of their healing journey to help disrupt the cycles of violence that have claimed the lives of too many New Jerseyans," Gov. Phil Murphy said in a statement to TapInto.
