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 Karuk Tribe requested funding to strengthen their capacity to respond to victims of all types of crime through the Karuk Victim Access Center in Yreka, CA and through satellite offices in Happy Camp and Orleans. With this funding, the Karuk Tribe will fund a Victim Services Advocate III, a Supervising Advocate, a Shelter Support Services Manager, a Coordinator, and an Attorney. Emergency shelter, legal services and other support services will be provided in Siskiyou County and Humboldt County, CA over a two year project period. CA/NCF
