Our firm assisted a tribe in its successful effort to secure a Forest Service decision banning rock climbing on Cave Rock, a significant tribal cultural site, and filed an amicus brief in Access Fund v. U.S. Department of Agriculture in support of the Forest Service’s decision, which was upheld.

General Memorandum 12-036
Family Violence Prevention and Services Grants for Tribes

The Department of Health and Human Services published a notice in the
March 9, 2012, FEDERAL REGISTER soliciting applications from tribes and tribal consortia for funding under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act. Tribes receive by statute ten percent of the appropriated funds from section 303(a) of this Act. Tribes should receive $13 million in FY 2012 funds. Funds are distributed to eligible tribes and tribal consortia via a formula and are used primarily for programs to prevent family violence and to provide shelter, counseling, advocacy, and self-help services for victims of domestic violence and their children.

The attached notice lists the base amounts that tribes of varying sizes will receive. After the base funding is distributed, any leftover funds are distributed to tribes by population. The notice also contains information regarding the application process and lists contacts at the Department of Health and Human Services.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is April 20, 2012.

Please let us know if we may provide further information or assistance regarding the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program.
