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, Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe will continue services under their existing Victim Services Program. Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe will pay for salary, benefits, travel, training, and supplies for a victim advocate (100% paid under the grant), a children's advocate (100%), a counselor (25%), and a program coordinator (25%). Grant funding will also cover utilities, maintenance and security system costs for the Victim Services Program building, fuel and maintenance for the program vehicle, outreach materials, and direct services for victims such as rental assistance and emergency services (e.g. food, clothing, and hygiene items).
