Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $289,659)
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 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. principal territories 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 Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation will use grant funds to assist and maintain its Sex Offender Registration and Notification Program by: (1) identifying 100% sex offenders that live, work, or go to school on the Reservation; (2) identifying and locating offenders convicted prior to the AWA Act of 2006; (3) verifying registration addresses; (4) detecting sex offenders visiting the Reservation for more than three days; and (5) implementing educational programming about the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Program. ca/ncf
