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 The Nunakauyarmiut Tribe requested funding to develop a new program to provide comprehensive services to victims of crime. With this funding, the Nunakauyarmiut Tribe will: 1) Develop working partnerships with the specific goal of providing services to victims; 2) Conduct an assessment of community needs; 3) Develop a strategic/ implementation plan; 4) Implementation; 5) Provide community education and outreach; 6) Provide limited immediate direct services to victims; and 7) Provide limited immediate direct services to child victims.
