Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $505,795)

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 Morongo Band of Mission Indians requested funding to build their victim services program to become more comprehensive and culturally competent victim services program. With this funding, The Morongo Band of Mission Indians will: 1) hire an attorney to assist victims; 2) support a mental health counselor to provide services to victims of crime; and 3) provide travel and training costs to staff to attend required conferences.
