Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $505,795)

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. Under this award, Kenaitze Indian Tribe will enhance and expand emergency shelter and rental assistance options for victims of crime in rural Alaska over a three-year project period. The grantee will assist victims of crime with emergency rental assistance, security deposits, costs of utilities and other short term transition expenses that will help crime victims find safety and healing in the aftermath of crime victimization.
