Bingaman: New Mexico Crime Victims Fund Receives Major Federal Grant

New Mexico – U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today announced that the New Mexico New Mexico Crime Victims Reparation Commission received a $3.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. Last week, the same commission received an $866,000 grant from DOJ.

"The New Mexico Crime Victims Reparation Commission's mission is to assist New Mexicans who have incurred legal costs because they were victims of crimes," Bingaman said. "These two recent grants will help them carry out their important work."
