    Justice Department Will Award Up to $246 Million in Grants to Improve Public Safety in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities


    Justice Department Will Award Up to $246 Million in Grants to Improve Public Safety in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities

    $113 Million in CTAS Grants Awarded and up to $133 Million Set Aside for Victim Services for American Indian and Alaska Native People

    The Department of Justice today announced more than $113 million in grant awards to improve public safety, serve victims of crime, combat violence against women, and support youth programs in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Grants were awarded to 133 American Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, and other tribal designees through the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation, a streamlined application for tribal-specific grant programs. Of the $113 million, just over $53 million comes from the Office of Justice Programs, more than $35 million from the Office on Violence Against Women, and more than $24.7 million from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

    In addition, the Department is in the process of allocating up to $133 million in a first-ever set aside program to serve victims of crime in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The awards are intended to help tribes develop, expand and improve services to victims of crime by providing funding, programming and technical assistance. Recipients will be announced in the near future.

    “With these awards, we are doubling the amount of grant funding devoted to public safety programs and serving victims of crime in Native American communities,” said Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio, who made the announcement during his remarks at the 26th Annual Four Corners Indian Country Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. “There is an unacceptable level of violent crime and domestic abuse in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. This increase in resources, together with our aggressive investigation and prosecution of crimes, shows how seriously Attorney General Sessions and the entire Department of Justice take these issues. We are committed to reducing violent crime and improving public safety.”

    The Four Corners Conference is facilitated annually by U.S. Attorneys from Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah to provide a forum for discussion of justice-related topics with a large number of populous and diverse tribal nations located in the region.

    CTAS awards cover nine purpose areas: public safety and community policing; justice systems planning; alcohol and substance abuse; corrections and correctional alternatives; children’s justice act partnerships; services for victims of crime; violence against women; juvenile justice; and tribal youth programs. CTAS funding helps tribes develop and strengthen their justice systems’ response to crime, while expanding services to meet their communities’ public safety needs.

    Today’s announcement is part of the Justice Department’s ongoing initiative to increase engagement, coordination and action on public safety in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

    A listing of today’s announced CTAS awards is available at: www.justice.gov/tribal/page/file/1095161/download.

    This is a literal slap to the face to AA Reparations issue. Native Americans receive all types of grants, land, set-asides and subsidies- but on the issue of Reparations, not one of our "Representatives" has a specific plan to enact legislation- in reference to an economic or financial distribution. But yet they offer them close to 300million allocated to deal with specific programs and assistance for this year. That's not even an aggregated amount over however many years - that's just for this year alone, for public safety. Native Americans were receiving financial assistance as a community since the early 1900s. correction - 1800s

    It's embarrassing people are talking like they're jealous about this. :mindblown:

    Native Americans have to live in some of the most fukked up systems in America. They get shot by cops at an even higher rate than brehs do and there are some places where close to 100% of Native women have been sexually assaulted. In some of those spots you can pretty much assault a Native woman and KNOW that law enforcement won't do shyt about it no matter what, it's that bad.

    Any of ya'all ever been to a reservation? Talking like you would rather be them. :mjlol:

    Here the government is passing legislation targeting a specific community after repeatedly telling us that cant be done... and that we should focus on 'uplift everyone' policies.
    How should we feel?


    ...whether they deserve/need it, isn't in question.

    Man stfu, they chose to live on reservations they got aid from government for decades, land, money and grants and basically sovereignTy. They can't make it work so they are stuck on America's teet.

    Yet you give black people who had it just as bad zilch ....fukk outta here


    If they can't work it out make them assimilate like blacks had to and bring them into the field of society instead of this Fake sovereign shyt that's obviously ain't working .

    However this isn't about saying native americans don't deserve anything , it's about saying why do all these groups have all these specific programs and blacks have none. Instead of justifying it fall in line and question it

    Come visit Baltimore. Or Detroit. Or Flint, where black people are still drinking poisonous water. Also read up on the history of Native American's interactions with blacks in the U.S. :mjpls:

    Indigenous people have had a water crisis for much longer than Michigan. That's why I say do some research before tellingpoeople what natives need or don't need or what's unfair
