Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $246,807)

This project will raise awareness of the Child Advocacy Model as a viable and effective systems response to child sexual abuse within Native American communities, using a well researched model that has been successfully adapted for tribal communities. The project will demonstrate that Native Child Advocacy Centers, operated by NACA Board and founding members, can be an effective model to address juvenile victimization by helping tribal communities implement a coordinated, child-focused approach to child protection and practice. The grantee will work with the Office of Justice Programs / Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to identify specific communities and agencies who will participate in the project, and to identify the desired outcomes to be achieved through a scope of work that will be revised by the grantee and the funding agency.
