Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $299,789)

The Omaha Tribe will utilize the grant funds to develop a comprehensive, community-based 'Ten Clans Intervention Initiative', with the guiding principles focused on the prevention and control of delinquency; to improve the tribe's juvenile justice system; and to create positive detention alternatives, focusing on the theme: 'Culture as Prevention'. The main goals are: 1) to increase community organization in order to develop a comprehensive strategic plan and design process that will yield a realistic coordinated juvenile justice service system model that includes enhancement and addition of existing services, and 2) to refine and provide a culturally appropriate, family-based prevention and intervention system focused upon youth delinquency on the Omaha Reservation. The project evaluation team, PAB, and the Project Manager will work to further conceptualize the Management Information System (MIS) that will help all partners to contribute data to a shared database that will be available to the partners to help track and aggregate data related to the project.
