OVC’s mission is to enhance the nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing policies and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime. OVC achieves this mission, in part, by administering competitive award programs supported by the federal Crime Victims Fund to develop innovative training, technical assistance, and direct service projects designed to improve the overall quality of services delivered to crime victims.

The overall goal of Tribal Victim Service program is to provide support to Indian tribes to improve services for victims of crime. Under this program, funding supports a range of activities including needs assessment, strategic planning, program development and implementation, program expansion, and other activities to address the victim service needs of tribes.

With this award, Kenaitze Indian Tribe will strengthen collaboration and partnerships within their Tribal Justice System. With this funding, the Kenaitze Indian Tribe will: 1) hire a full time Community Services Data Resource Specialist to focus on data collection and assessment; 2) purchase a comprehensive and effective data management system that supports the activities needed to bring about relevant justice and recovery services for crime victims and strengthen the coordinated community response to victimization in the central Kenai Peninsula region; 3) develop a comprehensive community needs assessment and strategic plan to properly assess the needs of the victim services programs within the tribe.
