The Children's Justice Act (CJA) Partnerships for Indian Communities Grant Program (Victims of Crime Act of 1984, Section 1402(g), 34 U.S.C. 20101(g) supports American Indian and Alaska Native communities for the purpose of improving the investigation, prosecution, and handling of child abuse cases, especially cases of child sexual abuse, in a manner that increases support for and lessens trauma to child abuse victims. The funding further supports programs to provide comprehensive and coordinated multidisciplinary responses to child abuse victims and provide trauma-informed, culturally competent, holistic services to child abuse victims and their families. The Omaha Tribe of Nebraska requested funding to support its Omaha Child Advocacy Program (OCAP). With this funding, the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska will: 1) complete a community needs assessment and strategic plan; 2) hire a 1.0 FTE Child Victim Advocate and a 1.0 FTE Family Preservation Case Manager to staff the OCAP; and 3) provide services to children and their families including an opportunity to participate in traditional cultural activities and other therapeutic activities.
