Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $292,711)
The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (42 U.S.C. 16909, et seq.; Pub. L. 113-235, 128 Stat. 2130, 2193) 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 Skokomish Indian Tribe will successfully maintain and continue the requirements of SORNA under the Support for Adam Walsh Act by securing funding to enhance cross-jurisdictional cooperation, provide SORNA training and improve public awareness and information sharing through a multi-disciplinary, culturally sensitive approach. ca/ncf
