This grant funding has ended and technical assistance is no longer available under this Initiative. 

The Strengthening Tribal Response to Violence Against Native Women Initiative provided training, technical assistance and resources for tribal governments and programs that did not have Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) grant funding. The goal of initiative was to enhance victim services and assist tribal criminal justice systems to more effectively address victim safety and offender accountability.


The Initiative was led by the Tribal Law and Policy Institute in collaboration with three project partners.


Tribal Law and Policy Institute

Tribal Judicial Institute (TJI)

Alliance of Tribal Coalitions to End Violence (ACTEV)

Alaska Native Women’s Resource Center (AKNWRC)

With the assistance of Direct Service Providers including:
