Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $529,320)
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, The Confederated Tribe of Warm Springs requested funding for the Victims of Crime Services Program. With this funding, the Confederated Tribe of Warms Springs will: 1) Provide comprehensive and coordinated multidisciplary responses to domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse victims and 2) Revise Tribal code and Rules of Court on domestic violence, sexual assault, strangling, and human trafficking.
