Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,188,088)
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. Tulalip Tribes of Washington plans to use this funding to enhance and better coordinate services for victims of all types of crime over a five year project period. The grantee will 1.) develop and implement a victim services strategic plan; 2.) add a Social Worker/Victim Assistance Coordinator at the Tulalip Police Department; 3.) create a private, dedicated space for victims and their children while waiting for court proceedings; 4.) expand legal services by hiring a Victim Advocate Attorney and using Guardian Ad Litem services for eligible cases; and 5.) enhance data collection and reporting capabilities.
