Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $447,361)

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.

The Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation requested funding to develop a Child Advocacy Center (CAC) using a multidisciplinary approach and complementing their other existing programs. In support of this effort the tribe will: 1) conduct a Community Needs Assessment to identify gaps and other issues in the community’s current response to incidents of child abuse and neglect; and 2) provide service delivery to children and families.CA/NCF
