Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $417,336)

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 Tetlin Tribal Council will use funding to enhance and expand the Tetlin Victim Services Program over a three year project period. The grantee fund a victim advocate and a program coordinator to provide case management, mobile advocacy, safety planning, and other direct services to crime victims. Funding will also be used to purchase a vehicle to be used for transporting crime victims and for traditional healing activities, such as Native Wellness Conferences, parenting workshops, traditional healing circles and other activities that are culturally appropriate and aligned with Athabascan values.
