Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $12,500)

The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (Pub. L. 109-248, 42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq) authorizes the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) to administer sex offender management grants. These grants assist state, local and tribal jurisdictions in developing and/or enhancing sex offender registration and notification programs that support substantial implementation of Title I of the AWA, known as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). SORNA was enacted to protect the public from convicted sex offenders and offenders against children by establishing a comprehensive national system for the registration of those offenders.

The Hannahville Indian Community project will include the following: 1) work to fully implement the Tribal Codes and related protocols for SORNA compliance; 2) purchase of equipment, specifically technology, to give digital capacity to access sex offender registry portals and digitally store data as required by SORNA; and 3) development of a public awareness campaign. ca/ncf
