The National Congress of American Indians Fund (NCAI Fund) is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit public-education arm of the National Congress of American Indians, the Nation’s oldest and largest organization made up of American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments and their citizens. The NCAI Fund’s mission is to educate the general public, and tribal, federal, and state government officials about tribal self-government, treaty rights, and policy issues affecting tribal nations, including the interpretation of Indian statutes.
The NCAI Fund has entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) to provide micro-grants to eligible tribal governments to support crime victim services programs and activities. Under the terms of our agreement with DOJ, we are able to offer funding only to tribal governments outside of Alaska. DOJ has entered into a separate agreement with the Denali Commission to support tribal crime victim services in Alaska. Information is available at denali.gov/grants. Recipients of this funding will be required to comply with all applicable federal financial management policies and regulations.
