Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $423,012)

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.

The Hopland Band of Pomo Indians will use this funding to: hire a .05 FTE Health & Social Services Director to oversee the project, and a 1.0 FTE Victim Advocate to serve victims who have historically not received services from the existing victim services program; increase outreach to victims of elder abuse; improve security at its victim services program office; and provide civil legal assistance as well as food, clothing, shelter, and other emergency services for victims of crime.
