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, Hoonah Indian Association requested funding to create a holistic set of services through a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) that uses trauma informed practices in a victim centered, community approach that will identify victim's needs and ensure that follow-up occurs to meet those needs. With this funding, Hoonah Indian Association will: 1) Conduct a community needs assessment; 2) Develop a strategic plan; 3) Develop a MDT that will work across the various systems that serve crime victims, especially children, elders and vulnerable adults.
