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 listening sessions. Under this award, The Bishop Paiute Tribe requested funding to continue to address the issue of violent crime in their tribal communities and ensure access of victim services. With this funding, the Bishop Paiute Tribe will: 1) Conduct a community-wide needs assessment to inform the planning, development, implementation, and expansion of services; 2) Maintain services for all victims of crime; 3) Increase access to culturally appropriate services and professional services such as mental health and substance abuse treatment; and 4) Increase community education on the public health issue of violence.
