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, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians requested funding to enhance their victim services program. With this funding, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians will: 1) support a part-time Project Coordinator to assist with day-to-day implementation of the program; 2) fund a part-time Project Director responsible for grant oversight, reporting, compliance, budgeting and supervision of grant-funded staff; 3) hire a full-time Program Manager for general office duties, in addition to assisting advocates; and 4) provide rental space costs for a satellite office so clients can receive in-person trauma-informed advocacy.
