Abstract: OJP administers several large grant programs that provide funding to Indian tribes and tribal organizations to address issues of law enforcement, domestic violence, child abuse, juvenile justice, and victim services. Since 1987, the Office for Victims of Crime has focused discretionary funds on improving services for victims of crime on Indian reservations through its Victim Assistance in Indian Country programs. As of January 1997, $5,438,640 has been expended on this program. Since 1995 the STOP Violence Against Indian Women discretionary grant programs has made $12.04 million available for Indian organizations to enhance the tribal justice system response to domestic violence and improve services to Indian women in abusive situations. Other comprehensive grant programs with specific allocation requirements for tribal governments include the Local Law Enforcement Block Grants Program, which is administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, and the Native American Pass- Through Program under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. OJP encourages innovative program development and improved service delivery in Indian Country. Other OJP programs provide direct assistance to members of Indian communities. To maximize the effectiveness of these programs, a variety of culturally appropriate training and technical assistance opportunities are available to Indian tribes and tribal organizations.
