This Vision 21 report by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) reviews the objectives and participants of the OVC-funded Tribal Victim Services Resource Mapping Project (VSRMP), which will assist American-Indian and Alaska-Native (AI/AN) crime victims in accessing needed crime victim services.
Abstract
American Indians and Alaska Natives have the highest crime victimization rates in the Nation but often have difficulty connecting with existing services to help them recover from crime and abuse. This fact sheet discusses an OVC project to develop a web-based tool that will enable victims and service providers to quickly access information about critical services wherever they are seeking help.
