Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $439,038)

The Developing Future Victim Specialists for Indian Country Program statutory authorities are 42 U.S.C. § 10603(c)(1)(B) and 42 U.S.C. § 10603(c)(3)(E)(i). Through this program, OVC seeks to further cultivate a workforce focused on providing services to American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims in hard-to-staff positions and locations. By identifying and training prospective victim service professionals in the early stages of their post-secondary education and career, tribal and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) victim service programs will hopefully have an easier time filling victim service positions in remote Indian Country and Alaska Native locations.
