Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,188,088)

DOJ and OVC have long recognized the critical need to support American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of crime. Over time, OVC has conducted a number of tribal consultations and listening sessions to gather input from our AI/AN partners regarding the Crime Victims Fund tribal victim services set-aside. Based on the information gathered, OVC will allocate the FY 2020 funding by an interim discretionary administrative formula. The formula being used was created with significant input from tribal leaders and from the information gathered from the consultations and listening sessions. Under this award, St. Regis Mohawk Tribe requested funding for the Three Sisters Program to sustain advocacy and crime victim services in the community. With this funding, St. Regis Mohawk Tribe will: 1) support four advocates to assist victims with crisis intervention and resources; 2) purchase a vehicle to assist with transportation needs of staff and clients; and 3) provide emergency intervention services for personal hygienic products, rent assistance, clothing, electric, car repairs, house hold products, groceries etc. to assist a victims and their families during a crisis situation.
