Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $221,663)

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 Wyandotte Nation is located in Northeastern Oklahoma, and serves a population of 4,324 individuals across a jurisdictional area that includes 34 square miles in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, as well as 110 square miles of a rural area that is defined by the Wyandotte Oklahoma School District, and a small tract of trust land located in Kansas City, Kansas.

Wyandotte Nation will use this funding to: (1) convert its current Victim Advocate position from part-time to full-time in order to continue to provide transportation, court accompaniment, and other supportive services to victims of crime; and (2) purchase equipment and supplies for the Victim Advocate to support the Advocate's efforts to assist victims of crime and increase the tribe's outreach and education activities to increase the community's knowledge and understanding of issues related to crime victimization, and awareness of services available through the grant-funded project.
