The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) are hosting a second webinar to further discuss DOJ’s new crime victim services grant program. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has released a grant solicitation to distribute at least $110 million to tribal governments for crime victim services. The funding can be used for a wide range of purposes to address the physical, mental, emotional, and financial needs of crime victims. The application process for the funding has been divided into two phases, and the deadline for the streamlined Phase 1 process is August 6th, 2018 at 9pm Eastern. Only tribes that meet this deadline will be able to access funding through this new program.
July 26, 2018 at 10:00 AM PDT/11:00 AM MDT/12:00 PM CDT/1:00 PM EDT
During the webinar, NCAI and TLPI will provide a brief overview of the application requirements, share additional resources to assist in developing an application and will answer any questions participants may have about developing and submitting their applications.
