Media Round-Up: Spotlight on Emergency Sexual Assault Services Grant Program

Earlier this week, EVA BC announced twenty-three organizations from across BC will receive grants to support the delivery of coordinated emergency sexual assault response services. EVA BC is administering a three-year, $10-million Emergency Sexual Assault Services (ESAS) grant program. The services that will be offered will start to fill the gaps in funding created when all funding to BC Sexual Assault Centres was cut in 2001.
