Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, and IHEs, including tribal colleges and universities, for activities that assist minority women who have fallen victim to violent crimes. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide technical support, educational programs, and training that enhance victim services and criminal and civil justice response relating to sexual assault on American Indian and Alaska Native women.

Beginning in 2012, Congress appropriated funds for the National Tribal Clearinghouse on Sexual Assault to provide training and technical assistance on issues related to sexual assault of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women. Funding may be used to establish, sustain, and/or expand training, educational programs, and technical assistance (TA) on issues relating to sexual assault of AI/AN women. Funding priority will be given to applicants proposing innovative ways of reaching a national audience of entities addressing the sexual assault of AI/AN women, including tribal governments, tribal victim service providers, and tribal and non-tribal organizations within urban areas. 

Funds under this program must be used to provide TTA, including web-based training, regional, or national training, and/or on-site training and TA, to the following audiences:

  1. Tribal communities.
  2. Tribal agencies and systems such as health care, schools, courts, victim and social services, law enforcement, and prosecution offices.
  3. Tribal and non-tribal victim service providers that work with significant numbers of AI/AN victims, both in Indian country and in urban areas. 

Applicants should include, but are not limited to, the following topics for the training:

  1.  The unique environmental, cultural, and traditional needs of AI/AN sexual assault victims.
  2.  Advocacy services for AI/AN victims of sexual assault.
  3.  Effective systemic responses to sexual assault, such as criminal justice, civil justice, health care, etc.

The Program will also serve to increase offender accountability for such crimes.

Note: Applicants must be willing to work closely with OVW on the implementation of their projects, including the possibility of modifying project activities to more appropriately meet the needs of tribal communities and AI/AN victims. Applicants will be required to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with other organizations implementing existing National Tribal Clearinghouse on Sexual Assault projects and any other organizations receiving funding under this solicitation.
