I missed the poll, but State of Alaska does not acknowledge Tribal Nations - it was a bill this year before COVID though

Out of the 90% of FVPSA funding that goes to Formula Grantees (States, Tribes, Coalitions), onl 10% goes to Tribes/Tribal Programs
Kimberly Feeney
44:57
*only
Shena Wiliams
47:40
Yes, that's about right @30,000. However that is not promised from year to year because the funding amount depends on FVPSA
Kimberly Feeney
47:46
The bump up the last few years was due to a Congressional Appropriation setting aside specified funds
Shena Wiliams
47:53
FVPSA's appropriation and also the number of tribes applying
Shena Wiliams
55:22
The question about sovereignty - are you asking how sovereignty impacts the provision of shelter, supportive services, policy, implementation of programming, relationships or coordination with states, etc?
Kimberly Feeney
56:02
But States can fund both Federally Recognized and State Recognized tribes with their FVPSA Dollars
Shena Wiliams
57:00
Also important to note that although funding is only for federally recognized tribes, tribal dv programs are statutorily required to serve all victims of dv which unfortunately puts more strain on their available resources.

Hey Shena! We got this question in the Q&A chat. I’ll send it to Kim as well but we were hoping you all could answer this towards the end of the webinar. I can unmute you both at the end if you would like to answer: WIll FVPSA consider funding Indian service areas in the future? As is, only federally recognized tribes can apply. We have an indian service area in our state that does not receive any funds from the tribe that is recognized. The service area is on the opposite side of the state and struggles to obtain funding. We fund with both state and tribal grants.

Sure, that is from ND isn't it?
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:01:33
Kim --- we can ask you and Shena this question later in the presentation to answer live and can unmute Shena and you.. Is that okay? I think it's a complex question
Shena Wiliams
01:01:37
Sure, I can answer that question
Kimberly Feeney
01:01:39
woops, sorry all, typing in wrong spot :)
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:01:47
It was sent anonymously on the Q & A
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:02:19
Shena --- we can ask that live later in the presentation and unmute Kim and you to anwer
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:02:26
is that okay?
Shena Wiliams
01:02:33
Sure thing
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:03:04
I think it may be from CA... we have that happening here as well
Mallory Sattler
01:11:00
Great conversation. I need to pop off for another meeting. I look forward to hearing the recording. Thanks for hosting this!
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:11:40
Thank you Mallory.. we'll send out the recording to everyone along with the PowerPoint after the webinar
Kimberly Feeney
01:15:32
As a reminder, FVPSA Regulations at 45 CFR § 1370.10(a) require States to include Tribal Coalitions in state planning processes; and Tribes should also be involved where appropriate with deference to Tribal sovereignty.
Tai Simpson
01:16:48
I’m curious how that’s enforceable, Kimberley?
Kimberly Feeney
01:17:06
I can respond at the end
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:17:51
Kim --- we can also unmute you later in the presentation to respond to that question in more detail with the everyone
Kimberly Feeney

This may be a question for another session: what are the best practices for supporting tribes through the application process? I’ve noticed some tribes don’t have the capacity to tackle the application or other resources.
Shena Wiliams
01:28:32
I can respond after Gwen
Tai Simpson
01:28:47
I can email Gwen too.
Tai Simpson
01:28:48
No worries.
Shena Wiliams
01:28:50
Sure, I can chime in
Ellen Yin-Wycoff
01:33:22
Thanks Sarah! Appreciate you chiming in. :-)

Our state allows us to fund tribes without requiring them to submit an application. We can fund tribes separately because they are a sovereign nation.
