Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $694,698)

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 Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan (SCIT) will enhance and expand services provided through the SCIT Behavioral Health Victim Services Program over a three-year project period. SCIT will provide a range of direct services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, including case management, safety planning, housing and rental assistance, utility and child care assistance and other supportive services to assist in the aftermath of crime. Funds will also be used to support a Victim Service Coordinator and Victim Service Counselor position, conduct outreach and awareness activities and a consultant to assist with updating Tribal Codes related to crime victim issues.
