Securing Urgent Resources Vital to Indian Victim Empowerment Act or the SURVIVE Act
This bill amends the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 to require the Department of Justice's Office for Victims of Crime to make grants to Indian tribes for programs and services for crime victims, such as domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers, child abuse programs, child advocacy centers, elder abuse programs, medical care, legal services, relocation, and transitional housing.
In addition, the bill makes 5% of the Crime Victims Fund available for these grants.
