The Administrative Office of the Courts has announced $337,000 in grant funding for 18 organizations through two grant programs it administers: the Parent Education and Mediation Fund (PEMF) and the Victim Offender Reconciliation Program (VORP). The courts awarded PEMF funding to 13 organizations, including a woman’s advocacy center, two juvenile courts, family centers and a legal aid agency. Two organizations — mediation centers in Clinton and Crossville — received VORP funds. Three organizations received funding from both programs: The Mediation Center in Columbia, the Community Mediation Center in Knoxville and the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center.
