Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $898,003)

DOJ and OVC have long recognized the critical need to support American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of crime. Over time, OVC has conducted a number of tribal consultations and listening sessions to gather input from our AI/AN partners regarding the Crime Victims Fund tribal victim services set-aside. Based on the information gathered, OVC will allocate the FY 2020 funding by an interim discretionary administrative formula. The formula being used was created with significant input from tribal leaders and from the information gathered from the consultations and listening sessions. Under this award, Kalispel Tribe of Indians requested funding to enhance the current program (Kalispel Tribe Victim Assistance Services) to meet the needs of crime victims. With this funding, Kalispel Tribe of Indians will: 1) Continue to provide advocacy for all crime victims; 2) Raise community awareness of services and resources available to victims of crime; 3) Increase staff expertise in addressing needs of victims of crime; 4) Work collaboratively with community partners and key stakeholders to achieve a victim-centered response; and 5) Assess the impact of enhanced services on community well-being.
