Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $417,335)

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, Huslia Village requested funding to implement a new victim services program. With this funding, Huslia Village will: 1) Establish local victim of crime services; 2) Provide mobile advocacy to assist victims to access safety and improve accessibility; 3) Provide a flexible funding model to ensure victims needs are met; 4) Provide mental health services and one-on-one counseling as needed victims served by the program; and 5) Implement grant project outreach activities and integrate traditional healing practices into the proposed project.
