Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $694,698)
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, the Hoopa Valley Tribe will contract for the services of a Policy Analyst, Program Advocate, Outreach Coordinator, Civil Legal Assistant, and Project Evaluator to develop and implement a strategy to provide comprehensive assistance to victims of crime in the community.
