Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,252,010)

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 Cahuilla Band of Indians will administer funding on behalf of the Cahuilla Consortium to continue to provide services to victims of all types of crimes. The Consortium includes the Cahuilla Band of Indians, Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians, and the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians. The Cahuilla Consortium will use funds to 1.) support program staff who will continue to provide a range of direct services to crime victims; 2.) enhance transitional housing and emergency assistance that can be offered to victims; 2.) strengthen relationships with law enforcement; and 3.) purchase a trailer to that will be safer and more appropriate for conducting direct services.
