Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,428,927)

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, Intertribal Court of Southern California (ICSC) will expand victim services for member tribes of their consortium. ICSC will hire 4 victim services program staff (Family Services Manager, Youth Services Advocate, Adult Services Manager, and an Administrative Assistant) to expand services to child, adolescent, and adult victims of crime; renovate a portion of the ICSC building to serve as a private waiting area for victims awaiting court proceedings; purchase a mobile office to house the four victim services staff; and contract with American Indian Development Associates LLC to conduct a needs assessment, create a Victim Services Program strategic plan, and assist with a two-year formative program performance plan in Year 1 and 2.
