Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $300,000)

The Comprehensive Tribal Victim Assistance (CTVA) Program supports American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities to develop, enhance, and sustain a comprehensive victim assistance program that (1) provides a coordinated collaborative multidisciplinary response to victims of crime, their families, and the community and (2) provides trauma-informed, culturally competent holistic services to all identifiable victims of crime, their families, and the community.

The Kenaitze Indian Tribe Division of Human and Community Services requested funding to: 1) support a Tribal Victim Advocate to serve as the lead position as a liaison between child survivors, families, community partners, AI/AN community members, the Tribe’s wellness and support programs; 2) hire a Tribal Services Technician to serve as an administrative coordinator of all child victim protective functions including scheduling, data collection, policy and procedure planning tasks, and all fiscal reporting and records maintenance; 3) hold a local training event for all relevant community partners to enhance delivery of victims services; and 4) create a Justice Services Toolbox to share protocols, policies, procedures, and stated outcomes that will reflect a community best-practice model of service.
