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. Under this award, Chefornak Traditional Council will use funding over a three-year project period to establish the first victim services program in the village. The grantee will hire one full-time Project Coordinator to guide a needs assessment and strategic planning process, conduct outreach and education activities, and provide emergency services to crime victims.
