Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,188,088)

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 The Pascua Yaqui Tribe requested funding to work in cooperation with the Tribal Law Enforcement and their Victim Services Program to reintegrate victims and their families back into the community. With this funding, Pascua Yaqui Tribe will: 1) Provide case management services, training, cultural support, and reintegration resources to victims of crime; 2) Create a culturally appropriate and medically accurate Victim Services Curriculum and hold quarterly trainings throughout the tribal community; 3) Provide Community Resiliency Model trainings to enhance and create a supportive community environment for victims and non-victims in the tribal community.
