Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $713,373)

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 award programs supported by the federal Crime Victims Fund (CVF) to develop innovative training and technical assistance, and to provide direct services to improve the overall quality of victim assistance.

The overall goal of the Fiscal Year 2019 Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside Program is to provide support to tribal communities to improve services for victims of crime. Under the solicitation, OVC solicited applications for funding to support a comprehensive range of activities including needs assessment, strategic planning, program development and implementation, program expansion, and other activities needed to address the needs of a wide variety of crime victims in tribal communities.

The Village of Aniak will use the funds from this award that it has received under Purpose Area 1: Establishment of a New Victim Service Program, to: hire a 1.0 FTE Project Coordinator and a 1.0 FTE Victim Services Specialist to develop and implement a plan for creating a victim services program in the community; retain the services of qualified consultants to assist the tribe in completing a community needs assessment and strategic plan, developing its capacity to administer a grant award, and providing customized, on-site, capacity-building training and technical assistance to support the establishment of a victim services program.
