The U.S. Department of Justice is sending money to Oklahoma to combat domestic violence.

"Oklahoma is receiving more than $8 million in domestic violence grants that are going to go to assist victims of domestic violence, to support recovery and to help us end this cycle of violence," said U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma Trent Shores.

Tribes, cities and nonprofits offering services to survivors are in line for funding.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A presidential task force charged with coming up with ways to address missing and slain Native Americans will resume tribal listening sessions Wednesday.

The task force held a handful of sessions in person with tribes and tribal organizations before the coronavirus hit. It’s now turning to teleconferences and webinars to update tribes on its work and get feedback.

Four sessions are scheduled through June 3.
