NCAI, NCJFC, and TLPI are hosting this webinar for tribes considering exercising the Special Domestic Violence Criminal Jurisdiction under VAWA 2013. One way to meet the equal protection requirements is to establish a Domestic Violence Court/Docket. Under the current CTAS RFP purpose area #5 tribes (who do not currently have a CTAS grant from OVW) can apply for funding to support a Domestic Violence Court/Docket.
