Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $694,698)

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, Shoshone-Bannock Tribe requested funding to provide direct services, outreach and community education to victims of crime. With this funding, the Shoshone-Bannock Tribe will: 1) hire a case specialist to oversee the components, duties and services for the victims of crime and clients of the tribe and other tribal service providers; 2) install and provide a security system at the program office and women's shelter; 3) purchase a mobile bully barn to store items for women's shelter; 4) purchase a mobile home trailer for office space and group meetings; 5) procure a vehicle to assist with client transportation; 6) provide general office supplies and computers for staff; and 7) contract with a licensed counselor to provide mental health services to victims.
