Over time, OVC has conducted a number of tribal consultations and listening sessions to gather input from American Indian and Alaska Native (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. With this funding, Pit River Tribe will develop the first Victim Advocacy Program within the Pit River Tribal Headquarters in Burney, CA. The grantee will focus on: 1.) family violence including youth victimization and 2.) interpersonal violence, elder and vulnerable adults, and other adult victimization. Program strategies include hiring a full time Victim Advocate who will work in collaboration with the Indian Child Welfare Program and the Social Services Program over a four-year project period.
