Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $442,403)
Children's Justice Act (CJA) Partnerships for Indian Communities Grant Program (Victims of Crime Act of 1984, Section 1402(g), 42 U.S.C. 10601(g) supports American Indian and Alaskan Native communities for the purpose of improving the investigation, prosecution, and handling of child abuse cases, especially cases of child sexual abuse, in a manner that increases support for and lessens trauma to child abuse victims. The funding further supports programs to provide comprehensive and coordinated multidisciplinary responses to child abuse victims and provide trauma-informed, culturally competent, holistic services to child abuse victims and their families. With this funding, The Central Council Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribe will build on the existing Indian Child Welfare program. The program will: 1) employ a full-time Family Caseworker to provide case management and wraparound services to victims and coordinate resources and referrals; 2) support a part-time Family Clinician to provide culturally responsive individual and group counseling services to child abuse victims and their families. Law Enforcement Investigation and Prosecution activities are not allowed under this award. CA/NCF
