Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $927,265)

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.

Under Purpose Area 1: Establishment of a New Victim Service Program, the Holy Cross Tribe will develop a victim services program that allows the Tribe to provide victims of crime with local responses and local services. The proposed project will be guided by three main concepts; prioritizing and accessing safety for victims, culturally and traditionally based, and providing flexible victim services.(CA/NCF)
