The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) invites tribal leaders and representatives to participate in a virtual Tribal Consultation.
OJJDP will use this opportunity to foster dialogue about the new tribal provisions of the Juvenile Justice Reform Act (JJRA), and gain insight on collaborating with tribes to implement them.
OJJDP also seeks input on increasing tribes' awareness of and access to juvenile justice funding, and creating a policy for ongoing coordination with tribes. The consultation framing paper specifies the questions on which OJJDP seeks input. View the Tribal Consultation meeting agenda.
Your participation will contribute to developing informed tribal juvenile justice responses that enhance public safety, promote accountability, and empower tribal youth and communities.
OJJDP is also accepting written comments at [email protected] for 60 days after the virtual consultation. Please submit comments by August 24, 2020.
