2:00pm - 3:30pm EDT - Georgraphic Region: Lower 48
The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) invites you to discuss the administration of the Fiscal Year 2018 tribal set-aside to enhance services for tribal victim services. The Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018, (P.L. 115-141) for the Department of Justice created a 3% set-aside in the Federal Crime Victims Fund (CVF) receipts allocated to OVC. OVC is responsible for administering grant award programs that are supported by the CVF, including the FY 2018 tribal set-aside. A paper providing relevant background information and questions for you to consider will be circulated separately. We invite you to participate in a series of telephone consultation calls that will be held between June 12,2018 - June 14,2018. Registration information is provided in the table below: Tribal leaders and representatives are welcome to call in to any or all of the calls. You will be asked to provide your name and Tribal affiliation when you register for a session. The times have been set below for the convenience of the callers.
If you have difficulty registering please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that you will be able to participate in providing feedback to OVC on this very important topic.
In addition to the telephone consultation calls, we will accept written comments from tribes until 5pm, EDT on June 29, 2018.
Written comments may be submitted by e-mail at: ovctribalsetaside@ojp. usdoj. gov
