Office for Victims of CrimeThe U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is seeking applications for funding through the Tribal Set-Aside Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Program, which will provide resources and coordination to increase the ability of American Indian and/or Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribal communities to provide comprehensive and culturally appropriate services to crime victims, their families, and the community. Using an approach designed to foster the emotional, mental, and physical health of victims, their families, and the community, the selected organization(s) will support the training and the technical assistance needs of Indian tribes and tribal consortia. The selected organization(s) will be expected to focus primarily on those Indian tribes and tribal consortia that receive grant funds from OVC through the FY18 Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside Program; however, the scope may be expanded to include TTA to other tribes, tribal consortia, and organizations involved in tribal victim services.

The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by July 18.
