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, Skokomish Indian Tribe requested funding to sustain the Victim Services program. With this funding, Skokomish Indian Tribe will: 1) Provide comprehensive support and services for victims of crime; 2) Enhance the services and support available for crime victims and their families through partnerships and resource coordination; and 3) Reduce the number of victims and crime on the reservation through prevention focused outreach and training and promoting the Skokomish Tribal Victim's Assistance Program within the community.
