Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $898,003)

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, Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community will improve and sustain their current Victim Service Program. With this funding, Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community will continue assessing partnerships and services examined in previous coordination/strategic planning processes, provide trainings on victimization-related issues to tribal victim service staff and the larger community, and pay for salary, benefits, travel, training, and supplies for a Victim Advocate Case Manager/ Liaison.
