Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $2,984,856)

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, Maniilaq Association will: 1) make improvements to the building that houses the Maniilaq Family Crisis Center; 2) establish transitional housing for male victims of crime; and 3) provide outreach to the 12 outlying communities in the Maniilaq Association service area.
