Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $417,000)

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.

With this funding, the La Jolla Band of Lisueno Indians will: (1) hire a 1.0 FTE Advocate for Youth; 2) retain the services of a consultant to help develop a strategic plan and conduct evaluation activities for the project; 3) retain the services of a videographer to help youth document digital stories and create PSAs targeting youth victims of crime; and 4) support the development of a Native Children's Advocacy Committee.
