Additional funding in newly struck budget for women’s rape-crisis centers

The state budget just signed after a three-day government shutdown was primarily fought over education funding, but there are a number of other programs that will see additional benefits due to the settlement.

Among them is an additional $5 million that will go to women’s rape-crisis centers, via the New Jersey Coalition for Sexual Assault, as well as money in the state budget for programs about domestic violence and rape prevention.

Another $23 million will go to higher education, including $10 million for NJIT, which is creating an engineering makerspace. Another $5 million will go to Rutgers Camden School of Business and $3 million to Rutgers Cancer Institute.
