The tribes received money through programs designed to prevent crime, stop violence against women, treat alcohol or substance abuse, or help crime victims.

The Tuolomne Me-Wuk, Bishop Paiute, Cedarville Rancheria, and Karuk tribes received money.

The Department of Justice's Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation began awarding grants to American Indian communities in 2010.

Since then, tribes across the country have received $620 million.

This year's grants total $97 million.
