Tribal Governments Program
The goals and objectives of the Tribal Governments Program are to decrease the number of violent crimes (sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking) against American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women and girls, assist Indian tribes in using their sovereign authority to respond to those crimes, and ensure that people who commit violent crimes against AI/AN women are held responsible for their actions through a strong coordinated community response.
Progress Reporting Update
July 2020-December 2020 Period
On Oct. 15, the JustGrants progress reporting platform opened. Please see the JustGrants website for more information about the transition. As in the past, Tribal Governments grantees will report their progress using a fillable PDF form. What’s changed is that the form may be downloaded from this website (click on “Reporting Form” below) and, in December, OVW will also be sending the form to grantees via email. The completed form will then be submitted as an attachment in your JustGrants account.
PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for the progress report for the July-December 2020 period has been changed from Jan. 30, 2021, to Feb. 28, 2021.
