OVC-2014-3935  OVC 2014 Vision 21 Tribal Community Wellness Centers: Serving Crime Victims   Office for Victims of Crime    05/16/2014  07/15/2014 

OVC's goal for this solicitation is to foster innovation that will support efforts of a tribal community to expand current crime victim assistance programs or models to address the complex, longer-term challenges many victims face. Consequently, this solicitation offers tribes an opportunity to address underlying factors such as poverty, historical trauma, substance abuse, health disparities, and lack of economic and educational opportunities that may contribute to the cycle of violence in a community and prevent the provision of trauma informed, culturally appropriate services to victims and their families. It also recognizes the importance of building on the inherent strengths and resilience of tribal culture and traditions to develop longer-term holistic strategies to address crime in Indian Country. OVC believes that focusing on individual and community wellness may offer a more sustainable approach to addressing the long-term, complex needs of victims and survivors. This solicitation seeks innovative proposals from tribes or tribal nonprofit organizations to develop a community wellness, victim-centered strategy that includes a Community Wellness Center as a central organizing force within the tribal jurisdiction.
