Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $1,999,727)

The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is committed to enhancing the Nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime. The Vision 21 Tribal Victim Services Resource Mapping Project aims to increase access to services for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of crime by supporting the creation of a user-friendly, state-of-the-art resource that empowers victims to seek comprehensive services; supports victim service providers in their efforts to expand their outreach on behalf of victims to ensure services provided reflect the myriad of needs AI/AN crime victims face; and provides a clear picture of service gaps for private, federal, and state funders. This will be accomplished by establishing a group of key tribal and non-tribal stakeholders; collecting and categorizing information about comprehensive services available to AI/AN victims at all levels including tribal, state, regional, and federal; developing this data into a state-of-the-art resource mapping and referral tool; and publishing the tool to the public in a user-friendly format.
