Native American tribes get funding boost for crime victims

 

April 16, 2018



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Roughly $133 million is expected to be made available to tribes to support Native American and Alaska Native crime victims who advocates say had been largely left out of a federal funding program for decades.

The appropriation for tribes was tucked into the $1.3 trillion federal spending bill approved in late March, and comes as federal Native American programs and services overall are seeing a funding boost – including some that a year ago faced the prospect of drastic funding cutbacks initially proposed by the Trump administration.
