Saying the Biden administration and the U.S. Department of Justice are “committed to fully discharging our responsibilities to Indian nations,” the DOJ has announced a total award of $104 million for services to tribal-community crime victims, including at least some funding for legal services.
The money, which comes in large part via more than 140 awards made through the DOJ’s Crime Victims Fund Tribal Victim Services Set-Aside program, can be used for an array of victim services, according to the DOJ’s announcement. Those include the development and implementation of new tribal-community service programs and overall strategic planning and needs assessment, as well as more specified on-the-ground services including legal services, crisis abuse intervention, medical care, shelter and transitional housing, and education and employment-readiness services.
