Today Gov. Gavin Newsome announced the distribution of $14 million to 80 organizations statewide to combat hate incidents.

According to the statements issued by Newsom the one-time grant money will be directed to organizations to "provide legal services and case management, mental and complementary health services, and other needed intervention and prevention activities." The funding was approved as part of last year's California Comeback Plan which included $166.5 million to combat bias-motivated attacks.

"This is a critical investment that will go a long way towards uplifting our communities and fighting hate and violence around the state," Newsom said. "We aim to help victims of violence, but also prevent violence in the future. History shows we need to do better, and this helps us get there."

The California Department of Social Services will fund a total of five lead organizations and will work with 75 additional organizations throughout California to provide these services. The Northern California - San Joaquin Valley region groups will receive $3.4 million with Sierra Health Foundation receiving $450,500 as the region lead organization.
