January 14, 2016 1:00 pm Eastern Time Register Now - Webinar: Federal Funding Opportunities for Implementing VAWA’s Special Domestic Violence Criminal Jurisdiction: FY 2016 - All federally recognized tribes may, if they so choose, exercise the special domestic violence criminal jurisdiction over non-Indians, recognized by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. However, this expanded jurisdiction, similar to the enhanced sentencing authorized by the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010, includes numerous due process protection requirements that can be costly for a tribe to implement. There is some federal funding available to assist in this implementation, including funding for tribal courts, for law enforcement, and for victims services. This webinar will explore the FY 2016 Coordinate Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS), and how several of these purpose areas can be used. Representatives from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) will be on the line to ask any specific questions regarding their relevant purpose areas. This webinar is offered as part of the resources of the Inter-Tribal Working Group.
