DOJ Grants to Reduce Tribal Domestic Violence

Agency: Office of Victims of Crime (DOJ); Program: Developing Future Victim Specialists for Indian Country (CFDA Number: 16.582) (Funding Opportunity Number: OVC-2017-12560); Eligibility: Tribal governments, public and private colleges and universities, nonprofits and for-profits; Funding: $1.3 million for three awards (no match required); Deadline: Aug. 9.

Summary: The program will support a pipeline of victim service professionals to serve American Indian/Alaska Native victims in locations that are often remote and where positions are often hard to fill. Applicants must have the ability to reach interested college and university students already living and attending school in these areas. The grantees will create a victim service internship program that will identify students in relevant fields to serve in victim service positions either with a Bureau of Indian Affairs- or tribally based victim service program. The grantees are responsible for creating and proposing the structural and administrative makeup of the program, which will include things like the process for identifying and selecting students, setting requirements for the program and addressing privacy issues associated with interns serving in direct service positions.
