Tribal Coalitions

The Grants to Support Tribal Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions (Tribal Coalitions Program) builds the capacity of nonprofit, nongovernmental tribal coalitions, to end domestic/sexual violence in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Coalitions primarily consist of organizational members (e.g. sexual assault programs, domestic violence programs, tribal victim services agencies, and other victim services agencies) but may also include individual members. The Tribal Coalitions Program enhances the safety of victims by supporting projects uniquely designed to address domestic/sexual violence amongst American Indian and Alaska Native women. Tribal Coalition grantees play a number of roles in responding to domestic/sexual violence: they serve as governing or organizing bodies for local agencies; they advocate for policy, legislation, or practice changes; and support collaboration between agencies to improve access to critical services for American Indian and Alaska Native women.

Big Changes Are Coming

On Sept. 22, the Grants Management System (GMS) that OVW grantees have been using to report OVW-funded activities will close, and on Oct. 15, a new progress reporting platform—JustGrants—will open.  Please see the JustGrants website for more about the transition, and view the OVW Action Dates memo for transition-related date and deadline information.  Tribal Coalitions Program grantees will report their progress from July 1, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2020, using the new JustGrants system.  The instructions and reporting tools on this website will be updated as soon as possible this fall to help you prepare.
