  Annotation: This report describes the programs provided by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) of the Department of Justice that serve Native American crime victims and discusses the impacts that the programs are having in American Indian communities.
  Abstract: Throughout the last 5 years, OVC has made the initiation and development of victim services the highest funding priority for the portion of the Crime Victims Fund that is available for training, technical assistance, and services to victims of Federal crime. OVC activities in American Indian communities have included the provision of emergency services for Native American crime victims, the establishment of victim assistance programs on reservation, and the establishment of programs to improve the investigation and prosecution of child sexual abuse cases in Indian communities. Other efforts have included training and technical assistance for professionals, the inclusion of Native Americans as a category of victims that States may use in meeting their requirements related to underserved populations, and information dissemination regarding crime victim compensation programs. These efforts represent a small step in the effort to achieve the basic goal of the Victims of Crime Act. Tables and case examples
