Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $250,000)
Through the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner - Sexual Assault Response Team (SANE-SART) Program, OVC provides support to enhance the AI/AN community capacity to provide high-quality multidisciplinary victim-centered services and support for adult and child victims of sexual assault from the initial point of contact through prosecution. The victim-centered approach is designed to help foster dignity, spiritual, mental, and physical health to victims. As part of this program, OVC seeks the assistance of a Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) provider that recognizes the importance of culture, history, traditions, and spirituality inherent in the AI/AN community and is capable of supporting the development and implementation of evidence-based sexual assault intervention strategies for tribal communities. The AI/AN SANE-SART Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) provider, in the first year of the project, will focus on two broad initiatives: (1) Support three diverse AI/AN communities in conducting a comprehensive community needs assessment and develop a strategic plan that will enhance and build a sustainable, culturally relevant, victim-centered SANE-SART project (50 percent); and(2) Support the development and implementation of a National AI/AN SANE-SART Strategy (National Training Strategy) (50 percent).CA/NCF
