Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,261,308)

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, Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada will expand services to all victims of crime. With this funding, Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada will hire two new victim advocates, organize and facilitate community outreach/awareness events to educate the community on the program and different types of victimization; and provide direct victim services such as emergency food, hygiene items, and shelter/housing assistance; transportation; crime-related burial assistance; and therapy.
