Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $13,000,000)

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. With this award, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) will design, administer, and oversee a competitive tribal victim assistance micro-grant program, in accordance with 2 C.F.R. Part 200, “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards,” to support a range of activities to address the victim service needs of tribes. These micro-grants will be made for up to $350,000 for a program period of 1-2 years to federally recognized tribes in the continental U.S. who have not received OVC tribal set-aside victim services funding in FY 2018 or FY 2019. All micro-grants administered under this program must propose to fill gaps in current tribal victim services needs and/or to develop or expand their victim assistance programs. Additionally, NCAI will select a training and technical assistance (TTA) provider(s) to deliver victim services outreach and capacity building to potential micro-grant applicants and to provide training and technical assistance to micro-grant awardees.
