Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $503,691)

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, Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation requested funding to reduce the effects of historic and personal trauma by helping children and families develop a sense of belonging and coherence. With this funding, Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation will: 1) Research, design, and develop an evidence based program that reflects the principles in the Native American community that considers characteristics of the community, coordinates with service providers and supportive services; and 2) Implement a program based on the needs assessment and program design and begin services in the community including individual, group and family counseling through outreach and establishing partnerships with Tribal and other area partners.
