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. The formula being used was created with significant input from tribal leaders and from the information gathered from the consultations and listening sessions. Under this award, Sitka Tribe of Alaska will: 1) develop a survey to efficiently and accurately determine what victim services should be added or expanded in Sitka; 2) perform outreach and conduct a survey about victim service needs; 3) compile data obtained through the surveys and complete a victim services needs report; and 4) complete a victim services strategic plan to guide the Sitka Tribe of Alaska for the next 5-10 years.
