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. 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, Valdez Native Tribe requested funding to develop victim services to reach the underserved AI/AN crime victims in the isolated region. With this funding, Valdez Native Tribe will: 1) hire a full-time Victim Services Director; 2) hire a full-time advocate; 3) purchase a trailer to assist with victim service delivery and transportation issues; 4) support IT services to maintain web capabilities; and 5) provide supplies and emergency assistance to victims.
